The Top 25 Most Popular Mystagogy Posts of 2015

Below is a list of The Top 25 Most Popular Mystagogy Posts of 2015. These were posts from 2015 only, and do not reflect posts of previous years nor from my other websites. Personally I find these lists to be interesting and filled with surprises, and it shows what drove most people to my website and reflects their interests, though I am somewhat disappointed that few of my favorite posts ever make it to the top 25. In previous years, the first three received more than double the page views of all the rest, but this year only one post did that, which was only posted last week. 

Thank you all for visiting over the past year and for your support, and I hope to provide even better more compelling material for the coming new year. Please continue to support this ministry to widen our audience with even more compelling posts, and if you haven't given financially to this ministry in 2015 please do so today by clicking on SUPPORT THIS MINISTRY. I thank you in advance and a blessed and joyous New Year to all!
