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.

Saint Isaiah of the Kiev Caves (+ 1115)

St. Isaiah of the Kiev Caves (Feast Day - May 15)

Venerable Isaiah struggled in asceticism at the Kiev Caves Lavra from the late 11th to the early 12th centuries. He pleased the Lord with his life of silence and tireless labor, for which he is called a "lover of labor." The Saint also had a special grace to resist demonic attacks. He reposed in the Lord on May 15, 1115. His relics rest in the Near Caves of the Kiev Caves Lavra.
