Dear Readers: A long time supporter of the Mystagogy Resource Center has informed me that they would like to donate $3000 to help me continue the work of this ministry, but they will only do it as a matching donation, which means that this generous donation will only be made after you help me raise a total of $3000. If you can help make this happen, it will be greatly appreciated and it would be greatly helpful to me, as I have not done a fundraiser this year. If you enjoy the work done here and want to see more of it, please make whatever contribution you can through the DONATE link below. Thank you!

Saints Anatoly of the Near Caves and the other Anatoly the Recluse of the Far Caves


Information about the life of Saint Anatoly the Recluse has not been preserved. We are only informed that he lived as a recluse in the far caves of the Kiev Caves Lavra some time in the 13th century.

Another Saint Anatoly is also commemorated on the same day who lived in the 12th century at the near caves of the Kiev Caves Lavra. Information about his life has not been preserved either.

Both of these Saints are commemorated on July 3rd in honor of their patron saint, Saint Anatolios of Constantinople, who is celebrated on this day.
