Wit & Wisdom: St. John Chrysostom


Wit & Wisdom: St. John Chrysostom; Father of the Church (ca. 347-407)


John Chrysostom (Greek: Chrusostomos, “golden-mouthed”, so called on account of his eloquence), Saint, b. at Antioch, c. 347; d. at Comana in Pontus, September 14, 407. John–whose surname “Chrysostom” occurs for the first time in the “Constitution” of Pope Vigilius (cf. P.L., LX, 217) in the year 553–is generally considered the most prominent doctor of the Greek Church and the greatest preacher ever heard in a Christian pulpit. His natural gifts, as well as exterior circumstances, helped him to become what he was.  Source:  www.catholic.com; https://www.catholic.com/encyclopedia/john-chrysostom-saint
