Dear friends

Our monastery had the blessing of receiving quite a few books of St Ephraim of Nea Makri in English from his monastery in Athens, Greece. St Ephraim is a very active saint in our church and is well known through the world for his miracles, especially for people with cancer. 

I have received a few emails from people who can't get access to buy the book because the monastery doesn't offer postage so I have collected a heap of his books in English (only) and are offering people the opportunity to buy them.

The first book is his life story as revealed to the first Abbess of the monastery through visions and also contains miracles from the saint. It's a well known book that is treasured by anyone who already has it (us included).

The other books is a new children's book that was only available in Greek until this year when they published the English version. I actually bought the Greek book even though I can't read it because the illustrations are the best I've seen of an Orthodox childrens book. It is illustrated enough that you can see the saints whole life story only in the illustrations. So when the opportunity came to receive the English version, we jumped for joy.


Below you will find photos of the books you can choose and their item numbers for paypal. The first photo is an example book I had signed by Fr Joseph. After his name he puts the letters MD which stand for Monk Dionysitis (Dionysitis means he belongs to the Holy Monastery of Dionisiou of Mt Athos).

All prices include postage. Unfortunately the price is a little high because the books must be sent as parcels because of their size which is much more expensive.

This offer is only available until the end of Wednesday as Fr Joseph will return to Athos and we won't be able to obtain his signature.
