(Source) A saint has reposed! Elder Ephraim, the former Abbott of Philotheou Monastery and founder of St. Anthony’s Monastery in Arizona (as well as numerous other monasteries), fell asleep in the Lord. The Greek news site linked above states he fell asleep last night, December 7, 2019, at 10pm (the feast of St. Ambrose of Milan).

Εκοιμήθη ο Γέροντας Εφραίμ στην Αριζόνα – Τετάρτη 11 Δεκεμβρίου η Εξόδιος Ακολουθία με πλήθος κόσμου από Ελλάδα και Η.Π.Α.

From the photos it appears he is currently resting in the chapel of St. Panteleimon which is located in the house where he lived at the monastery. His funeral, it states, is set to take place Wednesday, December 11.

If you click here, at the bottom of the article there is a short video of what appears to be one of the fathers reading the Psalter over Elder Ephraim.

To think how many members of his spiritual family in Christ are waiting for him: his spiritual father St. Joseph, his “big brother” St. Ephraim of Katounakia, Elder Arsenios, Gerontissa Makrina, his mother Gerontissa Theophano, his spiritual son Fr. Ephraim from Xerapotamou (who was killed in a car accident)… the list goes on. What a spiritual banquet they will have together!

Pray for him, brothers and sisters, until the Church begins to publicly pray to him. He was a pillar of Orthodoxy, a Shepherd of the last times, an Apostle to an age of apostasy!

May we have his blessing!
