On this day, the Orthodox Church honors the memory of the holy martyr Tryphon. The saint lived in the third century in Nicaea. From an early age, he accepted Christian customs, and as a young man, he discovered the gift of miracles, healing the sick. According to legend, Tryphon cast out a demon from the daughter of the Roman emperor Gordian III, who, although he was an idolater, did not persecute Christians. However, during the reign of the next emperor, Decius Trajan, persecution began and Tryphon was executed.
