Without financial supporters of the Mystagogy Resource Center, it would not exist. One long time supporter is currently facing a crisis of being evicted from her home and having her car repossessed. She and her family need help by this coming Tuesday to prevent this, at least $2,000 is needed. Please help me to give back to her. She would like to remain anonymous, so she asked that any financial aid can be sent through this ministry, which will then be directed to her. Thank you for helping with what you can. Please send your financial support at this link:

Saint Febronia, Daughter of Emperor Heraclius

St. Febronia, Daughter of Emperor Heraclius (Feast Day - October 28)

Verses

The Kingdom of Heaven Febronia,
You preferred over your inheritance as one who is shrewd.

Emperor Heraclius (610-641) had a daughter named Febronia by his second wife Martina, with whom they bore at least ten children. Febronia was likely named after the Holy Martyr Febronia of Nisibis, whose veneration spread to Constantinople in the seventh century, probably through Emperor Heraclius when in Mesopotamia, and in Constantinople she became known as a wonderworker with Saint Artemios. We know nothing about her life, though it seems she became a nun (at which time she may have received the name Febronia). She reposed in peace.
