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 11: $2740)

An Icon of Christ's Maternal Lineage


The above fresco, which is found in the Chapel of Saint George at the Parish Church of Saint Kosmas in Nea Philadelphia outside Athens, depicts Saint Maria, the great-grandmother of our Lord, holding in her lap her daughter Saint Anna, the grandmother of our Lord, who holds in her lap her daughter the Virgin Mary, the mother of our Lord, who holds in her lap her Son and our Lord, God and Savior Jesus Christ.
