St. John Chrysostom

St. John Chrysostom


“Do you want to honor Christ’s body? Then do not scorn him in his nakedness, nor honor him here in the church with silken garments while neglecting him outside where he is cold and naked. For he who said: ‘This is my body,’ and made it so by his words also said: ‘You saw me hungry and did not feed me, and inasmuch as you did not do it for one of these, the least of my brothers, you did not do it for me.’” (St. John Chrysostom, Bishop and Doctor of the Church, From a homily on Matthew)


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