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.

An Icon Meditation For My Birthday


The icon above is Russian in origin and dates to the 18th century. It depicts the various stages in a man's life as a triangle. According to this icon a man reaches his prime of life, or at least the top of the pyramid of his life, at the age of thirty-five, after which there is a descent into old age.

Since today is my 35th birthday, I find this to be an excellent reminder of where I'm at in life, though it appears its all downhill from here. ;-)

Note: If anyone knows more about this icon, or at least can read the writing, a rough (or complete) translation would be appreciated.
