To be truly rich we must learn to have need of nothing…St. John Chrysostom Archbishop of Constantinople

ΙΩΑΝΝΗΣ ΧΡΥΣΟΣΤΟΜΟΣ-St. John Chrysostom

St. John Chrysostom Archbishop of Constantinople

on November 13

The mouth of a just man distils wisdom; the lips of men know graces. The mouth of the wise meditates wisdom;

…There is the wondrous vision which St. Cyril of Alexandia saw:

The uncle of the Patriarch of Alexandria Theophilos had St. Chrysostom as his enemy…Once he saw the Lady Theotokos together with St. Chrysostom, speaking together in an all-radiant and most-beautiful place. Beholding them, however, he desired to, and asked to go near them, but the divine Chrysostom rebuked them and hindered him. Then, he heard the Theotokos tell Chrysostom: Forgive him, according to my grace, for he suffered much, was tried on behalf of me, shaming the blasphemer Nestorius, and proclaimed me Theotokos. Out of ignorance, he has a bad perception of you—an acquaintance formed an opinion and revealed it, which he accepted with awareness.

 After this vision, St. Cyril became a great friend of Chrysostom, praising him and helping to write on his life.

Thus the all-golden tongue of Chrysostom teaches: “A feast is a sign of good works, a pious soul, and a life of precision.”

For the rich man is not he who desires great riches, and is encircled with great riches; but the man who has need of nothing.

To be truly rich we must learn to have need of nothing – nothing but the presence of God in our lives.

The grace which shone from your mouth like a torch of flame enlightened the whole earth; it laid up for the world the treasures of freedom from avarice; it showed us the height of humility. But as you train us by your words, Father John Chrysostom, intercede with Christ God, the Word, that our souls may be saved.
