Venerable Euphrosyne, nun, of Alexandria (445).
Repose of Venerable Sergius, abbot, of Radonezh (1392).
St. Nicholas confessor, priest (1941).

 All-Merciful Saviour Monastery  Vashon Island, Washington, hosted a meeting of Washington Orthodox Clergy Association.  How many do u recognize?  It is good to see our different jurisdictions all coming together more and more.

 

(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.)

Please pray for the suffering Christians in the Middle East and throughout the world.
