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!
(Total So Far - Day 11: $2740)

Holy Hieromonk Pankraty the Recluse and Wonderworker of the Kiev Caves


Our Venerable Father Pankraty was a hieromonk of the Kiev Caves Lavra in the 13th century. There he lived as a recluse of the Far Caves. According to the chronicles, he was endowed with the gift of healing the sick by prayer, fasting and anointing with oil. His sacred relic rests in the Far Caves.
