Saint Tryphon of Lampsacus Biography
Tryphon was raised in a Christian family. However, his father died when he was a very young boy and was raised by his mother Eukaria where he worked as a goose-herd in his youth. He had a gift of healing human and animals. Healed the demonic possession of the daughter of Emperor Gordian III; a demon which appeared in the form of a black dog.
Saint Tryphon’s prayers turned away a swarm of locusts that had threatened his village’s grain harvest. He was also a persuasive speaker and catechist where he brought many to the faith, including pagan imperial officials. He was later arrested, tortured and martyred in the persecutions of Decius.
