September 13 – Saint John Chrysostom

Saint John Chrysostom

Almighty God, Saint John Chrysostom was very vocal in condemning the sinful customs of his society, earning the name “John of the Golden Tongue.”  With his powers of persuasion, he stopped immoral performances of plays.  I ask him to pray for the improvement of my own discernment regarding what plays, movies, comedy clubs, and TV shows to watch, and for my family and friends to turn away from sinful entertainment.  O Lord, bless those who choose what kinds of shows to promote and inspire them to increase the amount of wholesome shows that are available for us all to enjoy.  Saint John, pray for us.  Amen.

QUOTES by Saint John Chrysostom

God assents more when called on by ourselves than by others; and He often delays the giving, not from the wish that we should be utterly perplexed, nor to send us out with empty hands, but in order that He may become the author of greater good things to us.

As water extinguishes fire, so prayer extinguishes the heat of the passions.

God does not impede temptations. First, so that you may be convinced of your strength; secondly, that you may be humble, not proud.
