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.

St. Isaac the Syrian Celebrated in Qatar

On Tuesday 28 September/11 October 2011 the feast of St. Isaac the Syrian was celebrated in Qatar. Qatar is believed by some to have been the place where St. Isaac lived his hard ascetic life, and for the first time the church dedicated to him celebrated an all-night vigil in memory of this great mystical teacher of the spiritual life. The day of September 28th to honor this Saint was established in recent times by Elder Paisios the Athonite, who also wrote hymns for the feast, and it is also celebrated by the monks of Mount Athos on this day.
