Speeches of praise to the saints
The volume Speeches of Praise to the Saints presents the encomiastic speeches (of praise, of honor) of St. Ephrem the Syrian to various saints of the Orthodox Church. It is certain that for the Syrian author, the saints are not only models of life, but also our helpers and friends on our way to salvation, in the face-to-face meeting with the Son of God, Who called us to perfection and to His eternal communion in The kingdom of Heaven. Among the saints praised by St. Ephrem the Syrian, we mention St. Julian the Ascetic, Saints Peter, Paul, Andrew, Thomas, Luke, John, the Holy 40 Martyrs, the Holy Great Martyr Boniface, St. Basil the Great, Blessed Abraham and Mary, his niece. At the end of the volume we also find another encomiastic work, the Testament of Saint Ephrem the Syrian.
