New Martyr Ephraim commemorated today (NC)

You shone forth like the sun on the mountain of Amomon, O God-bearer. / Through martyrdom you departed unto God. / You endured the invasion of the barbarians, / O Ephraim, Great Martyr of Christ. / Therefore, you pour forth grace forever upon those who devoutly call upon you. / Glory to Him Who gave you strength. / Glory to Him Who magnified you. // Glory to Him Who, through you, grants healing to all.


  1. H/T: A sinner.

  2. He looks remarkably like Fr. Josiah Trenham.
