Rev. Dn. David Daumit

It is with extreme sadness that we inform you that Deacon David Daumit of St. George Church in Phoenix, Arizona, fell asleep in the Lord on Wednesday, January 28, 2015. His Eminence, Metropolitan JOSEPH has asked the parishes to remember him in your prayers for the departed for the next 40 days, to hold a special Trisagion for his eternal life, and to remember his loved ones in your prayers for the living. May God receive him in His Heavenly Kingdom and may his memory be eternal.

Rejoice, O Virgin Theotokos, full of grace, for from thee arose the Sun of justice, Christ our God, lighting those who are in darkness. Rejoice and be glad, O righteous old man, carrying in thine arms the Deliverer of our souls, Who granteth us Resurrection. (Apolytikion in Tone 1)

Thought for the Day

“O Lord, God of gods and King of kings, the Most holy of all holies, I thank Thee that Thou has made me worthy to complete my ascetic labors without faltering. And now I pray to Thee, that the hand of the invisible demon may not touch me; that the demon not drag me into the abyss of destruction. Rather, let thy holy angels lead me into Thy beautiful dwelling place and make me an heir of Thy desired Kingdom. Receive my soul and hearken to the prayer of all those who will offer sacrifices to Thee in my remembrance. Gaze upon them from Thy holy dwelling place and grant them abundant and incorruptible gifts. For Thou art the only good and merciful Gift-giver unto the ages of ages. Amen.”  - The Prayer of St. Tryphon before his death.
