Ah, my patron Saint! Troparion in the 8th Tone: "Grace like a flame shining forth from thy mouth has illumined the universe, and disclosed to the world treasures of poverty and shown us the height of humility. And as by thine own words thou teachest us, Father John Chrysostom, so intercede with the Word, Christ our God, to save our souls"

St. John Chrysostomos
He is commemorated on November 13 in the Orthodox Church. On January 30, we commemorate the Feast of the Three Holy Hierarchs, St. Gregory the Theologian, St. John Chrysostomos & St. Basil the Great. There's a great icon for that feast also.

Very informative and interesting.

His enemies found an instrument for his indictment when they discovered that he had harboured some pious monks who had been excommunicated by his archrival Theophilos, Bishop of Alexandria, who falsely accused John of treason and surreptitiously plotted his exile.

"There is nothing new under the Sun.."

The trait St. John exhibited, as recounted in this passage, is a trait that I so admire, it will blot out a thousand faults and errors. That trait of offering protection and solace to those in danger or in need is so grand for me, that it makes it impossible for me to think poorly of the person possessing the trait, no matter his other deficiencies, should he have any.

St John Chrysostom said, "The word of God is the seed of God. It takes root when we are receptive and are listening carefully. It is necessary to sow the seed by word and deed in order that it takes root and hold firm."
