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.

Rocket Dropped in Orthodox Church in Ukraine Does Not Explode (photos)

On the night of the 16th into the 17th of August, the Church of the Holy Apostles Peter and Paul in the town of Mospyne in the region of Dontesk was hit by a rocket 1.5 meters in length by a Grad missile launcher. It entered the church after a strange orbit.

It entered through the window, shattering the glass and throwing to the ground the vase of flowers placed at the veneration icon of the Pantocrator Christ.

The Ukrainian missile was literally pinned to the ground and didn't explode. It remained kneeling before the superiority of the Pantocrator Christ and it was literally made His "footstool". It caused minor damage and a fire was prevented. Immediately after the church celebrated.
