Coffee with Sr. Vassa Ep.39 ( Saint John Chrysostom)

A brief reflection on the Church Calendar, hosted by Sr. Dr. Vassa Larin of the University of Vienna, Austria. This episode is on St. John Chrysostom.

St. John is known for his eloquent preaching, for which he was called, already during his life-time, Χρυσόστομος, which means “golden-mouthed.“ So let‘s take a look at the life of this great saint!
St. John was born in ca. 349 in Antioch, an ancient city on the river Orontes. It was once the capital-city of Syria, but today mere ruins of this once-great city lie near the modern city of Antakya in Turkey. Antioch was an important center of early Christianity, evangelized by the Apostles Peter, Paul, and Barnabas, and it is called “the cradle of Christianity,“ because Antioch‘s converts were the first to be called “Christians“ (Acts 11:26).
