Dear Readers: A long time supporter of the Mystagogy Resource Center has informed me that they would like to donate $3000 to help me continue the work of this ministry, but they will only do it as a matching donation, which means that this generous donation will only be made after you help me raise a total of $3000. If you can help make this happen, it will be greatly appreciated and it would be greatly helpful to me, as I have not done a fundraiser this year. If you enjoy the work done here and want to see more of it, please make whatever contribution you can through the DONATE link below. Thank you!

The Greek captain and first mate of a cargo vessel died yesterday after their ship entered the area of the Atlantic known as the Bermuda Triangle amid high winds.

According to sources, the 47-year-old captain of the Aegean Angel and his 33-year-old first mate had emerged onto the deck of the vessel to see what damage it had incurred during an earlier storm when they were hit by a large wave. A 34-year-old Cypriot navy lieutenant who also had been aboard the vessel suffered serious injuries.

The ship, en route to the port of Houston in Texas from the Estonian capital of Tallinn, had been 800 nautical miles off Bermuda when it was hit by a storm and winds of up to 8 on the Beaufort scale. The Bermuda Triangle, also known as the Devil’s Triangle, is a region in the western part of the North Atlantic where several aircraft and vessels are said to have disappeared mysteriously.
