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 11: $2740)

Roads Blocked to Pilgrims Visiting Mount Athos



All roads leading to Mount Athos have been closed since Friday, after a decision by residents of northern Halkidiki. They have erected barricades and will not allow anyone traveling to or from Mount Athos along the roads towards Ouranoupolis.

This decision came after it was discovered that Iveron Monastery was seriously considering selling its forest land to a development company in Skouries. 923 acres of Lotsaniko Creek which belongs to Iveron are required to build a repository.
