Elder Ephraim of Katounakia: "Where you kneel and make prostrations, there the feet of Christ are”.
Elder Ephraim of Katounakia (+1998) (source)
"I was making some prostrations once, when the following thought occurred to me: “Where you kneel and make prostrations, there the feet of Christ are”. I instantly fell to the floor and started kissing the ground where Christ had stepped. I literally kissed it. These things come by themselves, you cannot provoke them. This is grace, my brother."
-Elder Ephraim of Katounakia (+1998)
Through the prayers of our Holy Fathers, Lord Jesus Christ our God, have mercy on us and save us! Amen!
