Complimenting the Akathist to Child-Martyr Gabriel is this additional new publication in the Akathist Series. It is a Canon to New Martyr Ephraim of Nea Makri, whose holy relics were discovered in Greece, in the year 1950.
Although there is a rich array of various healings by the saint, his “signature,” as it were, is for helping wayward youth, those addicted to drugs, the despairing and suicidal. The publication includes an insightful introduction, depicting the explosion of social media resulting in a youth culture racked by isolation and despair. Several accounts of the saint’s dramatic miracles are included, revealing the closeness of the saint and his powerful intercession.
