From the Menaion - 28 January


On 28 January, we commemorate our venerable father Ephrem the Syrian.

Ephrem, a Syrian by race and tongue, heard an unknown language, as the psalm says, calling him to the heights. On January twenty-eighth, the Angels led him up to sing his praises before God.

By his holy prayers, O our God, have mercy on us and save us. Amen.
