"Philip said to him, ‘Lord, show us the Father, and we will be satisfied.’ Jesus said to him, ‘Have I been with you all this time, Philip, and you still do not know me? Whoever has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, "Show us the Father"? Do you not believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in me? The words that I say to you I do not speak on my own; but the Father who dwells in me does his works. Believe me that I am in the Father and the Father is in me; but if you do not, then believe me because of the works themselves. Very truly, I tell you, the one who believes in me will also do the works that I do and, in fact, will do greater works than these, because I am going to the Father. I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If in my name you ask me for anything, I will do it." Jn 14: 8-14
Saint of the Day
Saint John Chrysostom
Doctor of the Church, Confessor
In 349 John was born in Antioch, a center of both culture and heresies. His father, Secundus, was a high-ranking army officer and probably a Roman and a Christian. His mother, Anthusa, was Greek and praised by her son for her piety and virtues. After a classical education, John was baptized during Easter 368.
He then aspired to become a monk and practiced severe austerities for several years, which led to an impairment of his health.
Ordained to the priesthood in 386, he began his illustrious career as a preacher. After twelve years, he succeeded Nectarius as the Patriarch of Constantinople. He instituted many reforms in the ecclesiastical life of the patriarchate, a project which made him unpopular with some of the clergy. His bluntness also created many enemies at court, one of them being the impress, Eudoxia.
