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.

Saint Michael Paknanas Resource Page

St. Michael Paknanas the Gardner (Feast Day - June 30 & July 9)


Divine Michael was not dismayed as he was beheaded,
For he eagerly accepted it on behalf of Christ.

Why O sword-bearer do you little by little against the neck,
Behead Michael? For he was not dismayed by the sword.
On the ninth Michael was unyielding as his neck was cut by the sword.
