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 Myriad (or Ten Thousand) Martyrs

Holy Myriad Martyrs (Feast Day - June 13)


Victorious a myriad fell by the sword,
Fallen also were the victorious phalanx of God.

The Holy Myriad (or Ten Thousand) Martyrs met their end by the sword.

We do not know when or where their martyrdom took place or who they were, but we similarly commemorate 10,000 Martyrs two other times in the ecclesiastical calendar, on March 18th and July 10th.
