"You struggled till being cut and burned..."

St. Tryphon the Great martyr and Unmercenary (source)
You struggled till being cut and burned, till the shedding of your blood, and even till death at the end, and struggled against sin, O Martyr of Christ, and now, you partake of the hidden life in Christ, as we cry out: O you Priests, bless Him, O you people exalt Him supremely unto all the ages.
-From the Matins Canon to St. Tryphon the Great Martyr and Unmercenary
Through the prayers of our Holy Fathers, Lord Jesus Christ our God, have mercy on us and save us! Amen!
