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.

Holy Martyr Dioskoros the New

St. Dioskoros the New (Feast Day - May 11)

Verses

While in our day there lives the myth of the Dioskouri,
Dioskoros who lives forever was beheaded.

This Saint was from the great city of Smyrna, and for his faith in Christ he was brought before the ruler of Smyrna. Because he proclaimed himself a Christian, he was put in prison. He was interrogated for a second time, and because he remained steadfast in his faith, the ruler ordered for his beheading, and in this way the blessed one received the crown of martyrdom.
