“Three things tell a man: his eyes, his friends and his favorite quotes.”
Saint John Chrysostom
Saint John Chrysostom , archbishop of Constantinople, was an important early father of the church. He is known for his eloquence in preaching and public speaking, his denunciation of abuse of authority by both ecclesiastical and political leaders, the Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom, and his ascetic sensibilities. After his death he was given the Greek surname chrysostomos, meaning "golden mouthed", rendered in English as Chrysostom.
The Orthodox Church and Eastern Catholic Churches honor him as a saint and count him among the Three Holy Hierarchs , together with Saints Basil the Great and Gregory the Theologian. He is recognized by the Roman Catholic Church as a saint and a Doctor of the Church. Churches of the Western tradition, including the Roman Catholic Church, the Anglican Communion, and some parts of the Lutheran church, commemorate him on September 13, though the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod commemorates him on the traditional Western feast day of January 27.
