Surname of Father Ephraim
:I added what I could find (''of Philotheou'') in the hopes of an article move, but haven't come across his surname. [[User:Magda|{{User:Magda/sig}}]] 16:36, 22 Aug 2005 (EDT)
== Surname of Father Ephraim ==
Father Ephraim doesn't have a one which is a monk has a surname.What happens is they have a first name only(which is a name of an otrhodox Saint)and if he is an elder father(spiritual father responsible for a monastery) then he uses the name of that monastery in order to show that he comes from the example of Father Ephraim, because he comes from Philotheou Monastery(in mount of Athos-Greece) then he is called as "Father Ephraim the Philotheitis)which means Father Ephraim from Philotheou monastery.
I hope you understand what I am trying to say...
