Dear Readers: A long time supporter of the Mystagogy Resource Center has informed me that they would like to donate $3000 to help me continue the work of this ministry, but they will only do it as a matching donation, which means that this generous donation will only be made after you help me raise a total of $3000. If you can help make this happen, it will be greatly appreciated and it would be greatly helpful to me, as I have not done a fundraiser this year. If you enjoy the work done here and want to see more of it, please make whatever contribution you can through the DONATE link below. Thank you!
(Total So Far - Day 11: $2740)

Holy Martyrs Cyril, Menos and Menaios at Viglention


For October 29

To Cyril.
Indeed crowns are promised for the future,
Cyril knew the promise for the sword.

To Menos and Menaios.
Minaios fell by the sword and arrived where he beheld,
And Mines falling by the same met his end.

For August 1

Menos dwells now with his fellow dwellers,
Menaios in no wise comes into wrath.

On October 29th we commemorate the Holy Martyrs Cyril, Menos and Menaios, who met their end by the sword.

On August 1st we commemorate the Holy Martyrs Menos and Menaios and others at the Viglention quarter of Constantinople, near the Bronze Tetrapylon.

It appears that on these two days the same Holy Martyrs are commemorated.
