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.

Holy Martyr Abudimos of Tenedos

St. Abudimos of Tenedos (Feast Day - July 15)

Verses

Abudimos was brought to an end by a sword,
And this also brought the crown.

Saint Abudimos was from the island of Tenedos and suffered martyrdom during the reign of Emperor Diocletian in the year 299. Having been arrested as a Christian, he could not be persuaded to sacrifice to idols, therefore he was laid down and tied by his hands and feet to four stakes. Having been beaten by nine soldiers, and because he was unwilling to taste of that which was offered to idols, for this reason he was torn by iron claws, and finally was beheaded, thus ascending victoriously into the heavens.

The Russian Abbot Daniel says in the twelfth century that his relic was buried in Tenedos.
