St. John Chrysostom[1]

St. John Chrysostom

“If the Magi had come in search of an earthly King, they would have been disconcerted at finding that they had taken the trouble to come such a long way for nothing. Consequently they would have neither adored nor offered gifts. But since they sought a heavenly King, though they found in Him no signs of royal pre-eminence, yet, content with the testimony of the star alone, they adored: for they saw a man, and they acknowledged a God.” (St. John Chrysostom, Bishop and Doctor of the Church)

September 13 is the Memorial of St. John Chrysostom, Bishop and Doctor of the Church (A.D. 349 – 407).
