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.

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.
