A Conversation With Elder Ephraim of Arizona
-- Elder, after so many years of struggle, what has remained within your soul?
Elder Ephraim: Everything is secondary, all is secondary. The first thing is the name of our Christ and now, over the years that have passed, I saw in action how only with love can people win.

Only the name of Christ and our Panagia brought me through. Whoever dose not say daily the name of Christ and our Panagia, is not a Christian.
