Many many thanks to all those who contributed to match a generous $3000 donation from an anonymous donor. The goal was attained this past weekend. It is because of people like you that the Mystagogy Resource Center can continue to offer unique material to all for free on a daily basis that I hope people find beneficial. For those who still wish to contribute, please do so, with much gratitude in return. God bless you all!

A Reconstruction of the Chapel of the Ascension on the Mount of Olives

A reconstruction of the Chapel of the Ascension on the Mount Olives in Jerusalem, Israel. The original name was Imbomon, was built by Poemenia around 384 AD, was destroyed by the Persians at 614 AD and rebuilt by Patriarch Modestos. Again it was destroyed in 1012 by the Muslims and now it is a mosque. Jesus's footprints are said to be still in the middle of the mosque.
