For your edification: three blog posts on St. Nikephorus. He was a leper. But now he rests, alive in Christ, awaiting the call of God, the day all will be resurrected from the dead, as all Christians do. His body will rise, as St. Paul writes in 2 Corinthians 5:4, “further clothed, that mortality may be swallowed up by life.” Come quickly, Lord Jesus!
He is commemorated in the Orthodox Church on January 4.
