Mystery of Confession and Obedience ( Elder Ephraim of Katounakia )


Elder Ephraim placed great importance on the Mystery of Confession
and on obedience to the confessor, even for laymen.

Particularly we remember that he told us, '' For whoever kneels even just once
under the stole of the priest, didvine Providence will arrange things in such
a way that Christ will finally gain him. ''
