Lovely Remarks from Orthodox Abbot Tryphon

Out in Puget Sound, there lies the lovely Vashon Island, home of Catholic coffin makers, all manner of eccentrics, a bicycle that was eaten by a tree, and some Orthodox monks.  A few years back, John Ratzenberger, who played Cliff Clavin on Cheers and all manner of PIXAR supporting roles visited Vashon and took a shine to the monks.  So he bought them a big piece of property and they set up the monastery there.

That, however, is not important right now.  What’s important is that Abbot Tryphon wrote a lovely welcome for Pope Francis.  Very cool.  *Slow clapping here*.
