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.

Synaxarion of Holy Martyr Agathodoros of Tyana

St. Agathodoros of Tyana (Feast Day - February 2)


Agathodoros, a gift according to my reasoning,
Is given as a gift, to God through blood.

Saint Agathodoros, because he confessed Christ to be the true God, was brought before the ruler of the Cappadocian city of Tyana. First they lacerated him, then they placed him on a fiery grill. After this they cut out his tongue, and with a tooth remover they took out his teeth, and with a razor they flayed his skin. They then crushed his legs, and drove a spear through his sides. After this they passed a fiery spit through his membrane. Having sustained these many forms of torments, the life of the renowned one came to an end, and he received from the Lord an unfading crown.
