“Gospel & Homily Feast Of St John Chrysostom” on YouTube

28 Jan

It is in Tridentine Latin Mass Calendar Country, where one will find the Great Eastern Catholic Heirachial Saints being honoured.

I know that you may think of St. John Chrysostom as a Heirarch Saint of Eastern Orthodoxy, particularly Greek Orthodox Churches, but he is a CATHOLIC Saint, Bishop, Confessor & Doctor of The Church. He was Archbishop of Constantinople, in short, Patriarch of Constantinople, in the time of One, Holy, Catholic & Apostolic Church. He is Patron Saint of Orators & Preachers. He was at war with Heretics called Arians. Arians believed the Heretical Teachings of a Priest called Arius, who taught that Jesus Christ was a Super Perfect Man, but NOT GOD.
He was a Student of St
Basil The Great(Bishop, Martyr, Confessor & Doctor Of The Church).
St. John Chrysostom did much anslysis of the Gospels and gave great commentary.
He was a True Reformer of The Catholic Liturgy. With the Epistle, Gradual, Alleluia & Gospel, it became the Practice of The Eastern Catholic Churches & eventually the Latin Church.Since the Liturgy was about the Re-presentation of Christ’s Sacrifice on The Cross, St. John Chrysostom wrote an Anaphora & added the Prayer Response from a New Testament Codex “For Thine is The Kingdom, The Power & The Glory, Father, Son & Holy Spirit, Now & Ever & Forever”, which is the Doxology of The “Our Father”, chanted by the Priest. It is also chanted by the Priest in an earlier part of The Divine Liturgy.
But, his orations of The Gospel & Homilies are what he was known for, as well as certain short statements attributed to him. He is quoted 18 Times in “The Catechism Of The Catholic Church.”
There is more to The Catholic Church than just the Latin(Roman) Church. Learn the Eastern Catholic Churches & you will truly learn about The Church which Christ Founded.

Deo Gratias!
Vivat Christus Rex!
