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 Sabinus the Wonderworker, Bishop of Catania (+ 760)

St. Sabinus of Catania (Feast Day - October 15)

Verses

Sabinus lived a life equal to the Angels,
In death he joined the chorus of Angels.

Because of his many virtues, the blessed Sabinus was ordained Bishop of Catania. After some time, due to the commotion that comes with the office, he withdrew into the wilderness to be alone with God. There he struggled very hard in the ascetic life, and in turn was made worthy of becoming a vessel of grace through the working of miracles. He healed sicknesses and diseases, banished demons from the possessed, and foretold the future. Having benefited many, they were persuaded by his teachings to leave the world and their parents, and become monastics for the love of Christ. He reposed in peace in the year 760.
