The Right Rev. Archimandrite Michael Trigg, RIP
I knew Fr. Trigg was dying some time ago; although it is not exactly news at this point, he passed into eternal life last Saturday. I see I failed to post a note on his translation (let's not pretend one who brought life to so many could experience death, not the true death which is to be feared).
Subdn. Robert has a beautiful tribute on his blog. Fr. Trigg was known for editing An Introduction to Western Rite Orthodoxy, as well as writing a chapter entitled, "Our Plea." However, beyond any typical expressions of sadness or polite comments on his passing, Fr. Trigg's falling asleep has provoked a genuine sense of loss among those whose lives he touched. That may well be the true measure of his life. And as a pioneering priest who labored unto his last, his reward shall be eternal.
May he rest in peace. And in time, may he intercede for us.
