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.

Patriarch of Alexandria Concerning the Orthodox Christians of Libya

Theodoros II, the Pope and Patriarch of Alexandria and All Africa, has commented that he is following anxiously the events going on in Libya regarding the safety of his flock.

The Patriarch is in constant communication with Metropolitan Theophylaktos of Tripoli who is grounding and strengthening the Orthodox Christians in Libya.

In a television interview the Metropolitan said: "I must stay behind. This is the purpose of the bishop. I can't leave from being near neither 100 sheep nor if it is only one. I cannot abandon my flock. Today we did a Divine Liturgy and there were a few people, but the church still opened."

The Metropolitan further said that at night the people do not leave the house at all, but in the morning they carefully go to buy some bread and water and also visit the church.
