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 6: $2350)

Saint Onouphrios the Silent of the Kiev Caves


The Venerable Onouphrios the Silent was a Russian ascetic in the Kiev Caves Lavra and lived in the twelfth century. We do not have other details of his life, but his holy relics rest in the Lavra. He is commemorated on July 21 by himself, and on September 28 for the Synaxis of the Fathers of the Kiev Caves.
