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.

The Reception of Orthodox Hesychasm in Far Eastern Missions

"The Buddhists and Taoists for the first time are hearing about noetic prayer and the mysticism of Orthodoxy, as something higher than their own monasticism, because they know Christianity primarily from Protestants, who do not teach such things. They asked my permission to translate the book A Night In The Desert Of The Holy Mountain and The Way Of A Pilgrim, which I granted."

- This quote is from a letter from Fr. Jonah, an Orthodox missionary in Taiwan, in the magazine Saint Kosmas Aitolos (2001 issue 45).
