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.

The Visit of Saint Tikhon of Zadonsk to Prisoners on Pascha

Illustration from The Russian Pilgrim, 1903.

"At the time when the magistrate's court was located in a part of the Zadonsk Monastery, a prison for criminals was also established there. The Bishop loved to go there at night to visit sick prisoners and give them gifts. On Pascha, as he went through the prison, he exchanged the Paschal Kiss with all the prisoners."

- Ivan Efimov, servant and biographer of St. Tikhon of Zadonsk
