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 9: $2680)

An American Philosopher Finds Happiness on Mount Athos


Simon Critchley, an American philosopher out of New York, has been writing an eight-part series for the New York Times taking a philosophical tour of Athens. On April 3, 2019 he wrote an article titled "The Happiest Man I’ve Ever Met", where he describes a three day visit he made to Mount Athos, specifically the Monastery of Simonopetra, and his encounter with a Greek-American monk originally from New York, Father Ioanikios. The article can be read in full here.
