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 6: $2350)

Holy Hieromartyr John of Persia

St. John of Persia (Feast Day - November 29)


And John the sacrificer of Christ,
Had his wages counted making him rich.

This is probably the same Hieromartyr John the Bishop commemorated with James the Presbyter on November 1st. They suffered torture and martyrdom by beheading in fourth century Persia under King Shapur, after having converted many to the faith of Christ.
