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.

Elder Porphyrios' Meeting With Elder Paisios


Elder Porphyrios said the following about his meeting with Elder Paisios:

"One day on Mount Athos I was traveling by tractor. Paisios was there. The two of us would say the Prayer mystically. Our souls were united. At one point he got off but we continued. Well, you should have seen then! Even though he was leaving he rushed towards me and hugged me noetically. You should have seen the unity of souls. You are able to love others spiritually, to hug them, to feel them, even from a distance."
