Update in His Own Words–Abbot Tryphon Sucker Punched by Unknown Assailant Please Pray for Both! Update

Passion Week: Great Monday. Great Lent. 

Martyr Eupsychius of Caesarea in Cappadocia (362)
New Martyr Gabriel (1942)

For those who wish an update on Abbot Tryphon.  He did a post on April 18: ¨An Update from the Old Monk. ¨  Rather than reposting here please click the link and read it on his blogsite.   The bridegroom Troparion is offered for this Holy Week.

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.

Lord have mercy on the Christians in Sri Lanka. Let us pray for them and for the conversion of Moslems to the Light And Love of Christ.
