The Feast of St. John Chrysostom at St. Sophia Greek Orthodox Church
Your Eminence, beloved brother in the Holy Spirit and co-celebrant of our Modesty, Metropolitan Gerasimos (host of this event), Your Graces, and dear pious assembly of the fullness of the Church.
Today’s sermon is about a Saint, a Prophet, a Patriarch and an Apostle. It is difficult to expose all the significant aspects of the exceptional spiritual personality of the Golden Mouth (the life, literary work and the ecclesiastical ministry of this great Father and Ecumenical Teacher of the Church), of a man who made a unique synthesis of the message of Theology with the mystery of the Church, of an exemplary Apostolic model of ecclesiastical diakonia – from the caves of the desert of Antioch to the Throne of Constantinople, until his death in exile. His radiance affects not only the Ecumenical Throne, or the Orthodox Church, but also all the Christian Churches throughout the world.
