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 9: $2680)

Two Miracles of St. Athanasius the Great in Kerkyra

Sts. Athanasius and Spyridon banish the plague. This plague struck Kerkyra in 1629-1630. Fresco probably from the 17th century at Upper Korakiana, Kerkyra in the Church of Saint Athanasius.

St. Athanasius saves a child on the walls of the old city of Kerkyra. St. Athanasius was the patron saint of Kerkyra until 1456, when the relic of St. Spyridon came to the island. Fresco at Dukadon, Kerkyra in the Church of the Most Holy Theotokos Mesochoritissis.
