Daily Catholic Quote — from St. John Chrysostom

St. John Chrysostom

St. John Chrysostom


“If the Magi had come in search of an earthly King, they would have been disconcerted at finding that they had taken the trouble to come such a long way for nothing. Consequently they would have neither adored nor offered gifts. But since they sought a heavenly King, though they found in Him no signs of royal pre-eminence, yet, content with the testimony of the star alone, they adored: for they saw a man, and they acknowledged a God.” (St. John Chrysostom, Bishop and Doctor of the Church)


The Memorial of St. John Chrysostom, Bishop and Doctor of the Church (A.D. 349 – 407) is September 13.
