Christ glorifies His saints, and they glorify His Body the Church as His genuine members. One of these godly men is the Athonite Elder Ephraim of Katounakia, who reposed in 1998. He lived 65 years of strict ascetism on the Holy Mountain (42 of which were as a monk in obedience), far from the world, poor according to the world, but rich in the divine charismata of the Holy Spirit that he had acquired, and was shown to be an obedient disciple filled with spiritual gifts.
