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 6: $2350)

The Vision of Monk Elias After the Repose of Elder Ephraim of Arizona


On Friday morning the 13th of December the Great Schema Monk Elias reposed in the Lord at Saint Anthony's Monastery in Arizona, six days after the repose of Elder Ephraim. On the night Elder Ephraim reposed, he saw in his sleep Elder Joseph the Hesychast with Elder Ephraim in a bright light, and Elder Ephraim said to him: "Don't worry, shortly you will be with us." Indeed, six days later Monk Elias departed to the Lord.
