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)

Photo of the Day in "The Guardian" is a Greek Priest


Today, Friday 11 January 2013, The Guardian featured a Greek Orthodox priest in the metro station in Athens as its picture of the day. (Click on picture to enlarge)

It is a play on shapes captured by AFP photographer Aris Messinis. This bench, at the Larissa stop of the metro, gives the impression that every seat is a man, until it finally comes to a Greek priest who is seated at the end. The bench is actually a piece of art created by John Gaitis (d. 1984), who created a series of works titled "Lonely Men" (Μοναχικά Ανθρωπάκια).
