St. Tryphon

An icon of St. Tryphon.

The Icon

Feast Day - February 1st

St. Tryphon was subjected to harsh tortures. He was beaten with clubs, his body was lacerated with iron hooks, and burned with fire. He was led through the city, having iron nails hammered into his feet. Saint Tryphon bravely endured all the torments, not giving out a single whimper. Finally, he was condemned to beheading with a sword. In the Icon we see St. Tryphon holding the iron hook by which he was tortured. In the other hand he has the cross of a martyr. The richly colored robes and facial expression denotes his status in Roman society and his young age.

Troparion in tone 4

In your manner a participant
And in your throne a successor of the Apostles.
You discovered action an entrance into visions,
O inspired one of God.
Therefore directing the Word of Truth
You suffered for the faith even unto blood.
O Bishop and Martyr Eleutherius,
Pray to Christ God that our souls may be saved!

Kontakion - Tone 8

By the power of the Trinity you destroyed polytheism to the ends of the earth,
and you were honored by Christ, all-glorious Tryphon;
having conquered tyrants tyrants through Christ the Savior,
you received your crown of martyrdom and the gift of divine healing, for you are invincible.
