I don’t think I can even write anything about this. When this story first broke, there was nothing about Fr. Daniel having a family.
Hard as life can be for all of us clergy wives at times, very few of us in this day and age experience what Mat. Julia Sysoieva has experienced, as she buries her martyred husband. Fr. Tryphon posts a letter from her on his blog . It is so touching to read from her not hagiography but an account of obedience to God in the course of ordinarry life, and God’s providence in that life.
Let us remember Mat. Julia and her children in our prayers.
