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.

St. Theodore the Studite on the Veneration of John the Forerunner

By St. Theodore the Studite

I venerate those beautiful feet, which evangelized the good things to the people and with which he prepared the way for the coming of the Lord.

Bring also the precious chains with which was tied the most precious and angelic among men.

Bring also the revered plate on which was placed the most revered head worth more than all gold.

Moreover, if I found it, I would not leave unvenerated the murderous knife which entered the sacred neck, nor would I hold back from kissing the dirt which guarded this treasure, certain that even this would have transmitted to me divine grace.
