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 Zeno, Bishop of Kourion


Verses

Zeno was joined to the God in whom he hoped,
As Scripture says, hope does not put to shame.

Saint Zeno was the Bishop of Kourion in Cyprus. Together with Bishop Reginos of Constantia and Bishop Evagrios of Solon, Bishop Zeno was instrumental in asserting the independence and autocephaly of the Cypriot Church at the Third Ecumenical Synod of Ephesus in 431. He is also credited as signing the Acts of the Synod. Bishop Zeno of Kourion also is known to have overseen the building of the great basilica which was constructed over the ruins of a major pagan temple in Kourion, the ruins of which still exist.
