Full english translation expected 2023, Uncut Mountain Press

By: Parishioners of the Greek Archdiocese in Canada

Τι μου έκανε εντύπωση στον Γέροντα Εφραίμ Αριζόνας - π. Πέτρος Χιρς

Translation: What Made An Impression On Me In Elder Ephraim of Arizona - Fr. Peter Heers

Μου έκανε εντύπωση πως μιλούσε, πως προσευχόταν... Η αγιότητα του φαινόταν στην κάθε κίνηση του.

Είδα έναν άνθρωπο που είχε κυριέψει τα πάθη του, έναν άνθρωπο ελεύθερο εν Χριστώ.

Ένας άνθρωπος που ήταν μέσα στην χαρά της Αναστάσεως, μέσα στην αιώνια Αγάπη του Θεού. π.

Πέτρος Χιρς για τον Μακαριστό Γέροντα Εφραίμ Αριζόνας

The Saints of Each Generation Form a Kind of Golden Chain

St. Symeon the New Theologian

St. Symeon the New Theologian writes,

"The Saints — those who appear from generation to generation, from time to time, following the Saints who preceded them — become linked with their predecessors through obedience to the divine commandments, and endowed with divine grace, become filled with the same light. In such a sequence all of them together form a kind of golden chain, each Saint being a...
