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 Nikephoros Came To Comfort Me in My Pain" (Elder Eumenios Saridakis)


There was a certain woman who took care of Elder Eumenios Saridakis the last year of his life. According her testimony, on January 4th that year, which had been the day of the repose of Saint Nikephoros the Leper, the Elder was in a lot of pain. Suddenly, at one point, she heard the Elder say: "And I also love you very much." When she later asked him to tell her who he was speaking with, Father Eumenios replied: "Saint Nikephoros celebrates today, and he came to see me. He told me that he loves me very much and he came to comfort me in my pain."
