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!
(Total So Far - Day 11: $2740)

Divine Liturgy With Elder Porphyrios (video)

This Divine Liturgy with Elder Porphyrios was recorded on 27 May 1977 at the Holy Church of Saint Nicholas in Kallision. It was recorded by Maria Liva and found among her belongings following her passing. It was given to the Hesychasterion of Elder Porphyrios in Milesi by a relative of hers. The entire recording begins with the Praises of Orthros and ends with the conclusion of the Divine Liturgy. The chanter is Elder Porphyrios' sister Hariklia, who later became the nun Porphyria, the first abbess of the Hermitage of the Transfiguration of Christ.

This recording offers the listener the opportunity to hear the voice of a Saint celebrating mystagogically the Divine Liturgy. The above recording is taken from the Small Entrance.
