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.

A Snake of the Panagia Has Finally Appeared in Kefallonia (2014)

According to news sources from Kefallonia, the first and only snake so far made its appearance in the Church of the Dormition of the Theotokos in the village of Arginia at 1:00 in the morning on Monday, August 11th, and this was followed by the bells joyfully peeling for the delightful and much anticipated event.

When the sacred snakes failed to appear in both Arginia and Markopoulo on August 6th, as they do every year, panic struck many in Kefallonia, since in two previous years when they failed to appear it seemed to mean some sort of disaster was coming to the island. Now that one of the snakes has appeared, the people feel relieved and their prayers are answered.

To read more about this miracle, read my study titled The Holy Snakes of the Virgin Mary: Examining the Mysterious Annual Appearance of Snakes in Kefallonia, which can be purchased here.
