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.

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.
