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)

3rd Anniversary of the Miraculous Return of the Sacred Relic of St. Nikodemos the Hagiorite

In the Holy Coenobium of Saint Nikodemos the Hagiorite of Pentalofos in Goumenissa, a Metochion of Simonopetra Monastery, was celebrated for the third year in a row the miraculous finding and return of the sacred relic of St. Nikodemos the Hagiorite after it had been stolen. This is celebrated annually on the Sunday of Saint Thomas.

Four times St. Nikodemos appeared alive to the sacriligious thief, gently prompting him to repentance, saying to him the following: "Please, my child, take me to my home from where you took me, you have afflicted me enough!" This is exactly what the Police wrote in their report.

A great number of faithful and dignitaries attended this celebration.
