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.

A Divine Liturgy of the "Apostolic Constitutions" Celebrated In Cyprus


At the Church of Panagia of Agia Napa at the Metropolis of Constantia and Ammochostou in Cyprus on December 20th, an ancient Divine Liturgy was celebrated. December 20th is the feast day of St. Ignatius of Antioch. The Divine Liturgy was celebrated according to the rubric of the eighth book of the Apostolic Constitutions, which was in use by the Antiochian Church of the early Christian period.

After readings from the Old Testament and New Testament and the prayers and dismissals of the Catechumens, this Divine Liturgy immediately goes to the consecration of the Holy Gifts.
