Many thanks to all those who sponsor and support the Mystagogy Resource Center; your positive feedback and generosity through financial gifts have been encouraging. Without this support, I would not be able to devote the time I need to produce all that you will see moving forward. Since I am now working by the hour and my time is more limited, I need to figure things out how to best use my time for your benefit, and will then give a progress report some time in the spring. Till then, I encourage all those who do not yet financially support this ministry - yet find some benefit from it - to likewise do so in order that it may continue to be helpful to you and countless others. See links at the bottom of this page to submit your contribution.

Elder Moses of Hilandari Monastery Has Reposed

According to, Elder Moses, the abbot of the Holy Monastery of Hilandari Monastery on Mount Athos, has reposed today. In the world he was known as Stanislav Zarkovich. He was born in 1923 at Zorka, Serbia. On Mount Athos he was seen as a spiritual giant, yet was always a very humble and sweet elder. He was tonsured in Serbia in 1947 and came to the Holy Mountain in 1964. On Novemeber 22, 1992 he was elected to be the abbot of Hilandari Monastery and enthroned. In his last years, due to health reasons, he lived outside of Hilandari Monastery and the Metochion of Kakavos in Ierissos of Halkidiki. His funeral will take place tomorrow after the Presanctified Liturgy by Metropolitan Amphilochios of Mavrovouniou.
