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 John, Bishop of Irenopolis

St. John of Irenopolis (Feast Day - February 4)

Verses

And John, on behalf of orthodoxy,
Rebuked the impious, with boldness.

Our Venerable Father John was Bishop of Irenopolis, and was one of the Three Hundred and Eighteen God-bearing Fathers of the First Ecumenical Synod gathered in Nicaea in the year 325. Though it has been believed in he was the Bishop of Irenopolis in Cilicia, in the Synodal lists of the Nicene Fathers the Bishop of Irenopolis in Cilicia was Narcissus. In consequence of this, it is believed that John was the Bishop of Irenopolis in Isauria. He reposed in peace.
