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 Paisios on the Incorrupt Relics of St. Spyridon


- Elder, did St. Spyridon perhaps request from God that his relics remain incorrupt?

- No, how could that happen? The saints do not ask for things like that. By His economy God allowed the relics to remain incorrupt in order to help people. And see how God economized this! Because Kerkyra, Kefallonia, and Zakyntho are near Italy, and it would be easy for the people to be seduced by Catholicism, placing a dam over there with St. Spyridon, St. Gerasimos, and St. Dionysios.
