Many many thanks to all those who contributed to match a generous $3000 donation from an anonymous donor. The goal was attained this past weekend. It is because of people like you that the Mystagogy Resource Center can continue to offer unique material to all for free on a daily basis that I hope people find beneficial. For those who still wish to contribute, please do so, with much gratitude in return. God bless you all!

Holy Six Martyrs of Bizye

Holy Six Martyrs of Bizye (Feast Day - August 10)


With broken bones and torn flesh,
The six athletes seized their wreaths.

The Holy Six Martyrs of Bizye* met their end by having their bones crushed and their flesh torn.


* Bizye is the ancient Greek name for today's Vize, in the Marmara region of Turkey. Some sources say it should read Libya.
