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.

Archimandrite Angelos Lyssaris, A Descendent of Kolokotronis, Reposes

 
September 25, 2010 
 
Today, Saturday 25 September 2010, Archimandrite Angelos Lyssaris, Abbot of the Holy Monastery of the Annunciation in Skiathos, an important center of the Kollyvades Fathers, has reposed. It is worth noting that the late Abbot Angelos Lyssaris was a third generation descendent of the Arch-General of the Revolution of 1821, Theodoros Kolokotronis. Fr. Angelos Lyssaris was originally from Limbovisi in the mountains of Arcadia (where also Kolokotronis was from), and according to tradition, at the Monastery of the Annunciation the first Greek flag with the white cross in the middle was stitched, blessed and raised in 1807. Lastly, the late Abbot was the priest chosen by Free Agia Sofia of Greek-American Chris Spyrou to liturgize in Hagia Sophia.
