Abbot Tryphon Sucker Punched by Unknown Assailant Please Pray for Both!

Venerable Joseph the Hymnographer of Sicily (883)

 Abbot Tryphon of All-Merciful Saviour Monastery fb on Vashon Island, Washington  was punched by an unknown assailant while he was pumping gas.  While of course we will keep Abbot Tryphon in our prayers.  The irony is that the assailant needs it far far more.  Let us keep them both in our prayers and perhaps a man whose heart needs Christ will open it to him.  Below is the post from the website.

¨Prayers Requested

Abbot Tryphon of the All-Merciful Saviour Monastery was attacked while pumping gas at a Burien, WA gas station Tuesday around noon. A random man came over, and sucker punched Abbot Tryphon in the face, knocking him to the ground.¨  Click for full post.


Abbot Tryphon has a both a Blog The Morning Offering (Daily Inspiration from All-Merciful Saviour Monastery) and a daily Podcast also called The Morning Offering Podcast.  His site features daily scripture verses, a reflection, and often some lovely pictures of the Monastery or other local NW Orthodox Churches to inspire our pilgrim journey.  He has a book “The Morning Offering” which can be purchased here.  On a side note I know the Monastery could use financial support.  They receive a number of pilgrims and visitors and need to build guest quarters.

May the Lord have mercy on France, and may the rebuilding of the great Cathedral also Resurrect the Faith in Christ and the desire to live for him. By the prayers of Notre Dame, St Gertrude, St Martin of Tours, Bishop Ireneaus of Lyon, and the Loving Compassion of He who was crowned with Thorns.
