  1. Lord love you, dear Father! I hope that there other venues online where you can flourish and reach out. I am pretty ignorant regarding these issues but I hope someone can give you good counsel.
    You and your community are in my daily prayers.

  2. Dear Abbot Tryphon,
    I am so sorry to hear about your being kicked out of Facebook. I pray that all of your friends on there will come over to your podcast and videos on Ancient Faith Ministries. I read your blog posts everyday I get via my email and am truly blessed by it. Please try not to feel too discouraged about what has happened. You and your brother monks are in my prayers.

  3. I can see your Facebook page and all of the posts in it up until April 2. It does not appear that it has been blocked, or at least they are not indicating that it has been blocked. Are you sure there isn’t some other kind of technical issues that you cannot access your Facebook account?
    And, for what it’s worth, people have commented on your last post of April 2nd indicating that your account may be blocked and where to go get to your other blogs here on your website.
    Hope that helps!

    1. Well, I am barred from Facebook. I can not post, nor can I read anything that someone might send my way. I’ve had a number of knowledgeable people try to get me back on, but they’ve not been able.

  4. Thank you so much for your Facebook ministry and I am very sorry to hear what happened. I have benefited greatly from your Facebook and podcast ministry and also from visiting you at the monastery. You are a shining light during these troubling times. I plan to visit you soon before Lent is over.

  5. I was just disabled from Facebook and have no reason why. I was not using it for at least 1 year and went on about 1 week ago to view 1 thing from the Orthodox Church, left no comment and when I checked it a few days later received the info that I was disabled. I really don’t care and will not inquire about it. It seems they are playing games with people and I want no part of it.

    Your reason for being on Facebook is much more spiritually important than mine when you reach out to so many….I will pray for you! You are not the only one this is happening to…..

    God bless!

  6. Dear Abbot Tryphon,
    I am saddened to hear of your removal from Facebook. Please know that you are in my prayers! I pray that as one door is closed another one will open! I do still get your daily messages in my email. Praise God!! In the words from a song: “Don’t worry, be happy!!”
    Glory to Jesus Christ!☦
