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.

Synaxarion of the Holy Martyr Melitini

St. Melitini the Martyr (Feast Day - October 29)


Melitini stood naked in court,
As one who is triumphant through love of the Lord.

Saint Melitini, after she was accused of being a Christian before the ruler of the land, stood before him. First her face was beaten, then her entire naked body was exposed. In this way she stood as one who is led in triumph through Christ for many hours in the middle of the court. Standing naked in this manner, she ridiculed the ruler and his idols. The blessed one considered it an honor, to be a recipient of dishonor for Christ. After being tormented with many torments, she was kept unharmed. Finally she was wounded all over with a sword, and in this way delivered her soul into the hands of God.
