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 Paisios and Little Paisios


The photo above depicts "Little Paisios" playing while surrounded by his family to whom he brings much joy, especially to his mother. When doctors told her to get an abortion and not go through with childbirth because of her weak heart, Elder Paisios told her that her child's heart is so strong that it will over-power her weak heart. The woman listened to Elder Paisios, putting her life in danger, and gave birth to a healthy baby boy, whom she named "Paisios" in honor of the Elder.
