Bishop, Confessor and Doctor

Chrysostom, “Mouth of Gold”, is the prince of sacred speakers, the incomparable commentator of divine Scripture, the intrepid expositor of courtly corruption. For seven years he was Archbishop of Constantinople, and there and in Antioch, where he preached for many years, he was the champion of the people, whom he paternally loved. Condemned to exile by the Empress Eudoxia, whose vices he rebuked, he endured terrible hardships, and died a death much like martyrdom.
