Spiritual Quote of the Day (St. John Chrysostom, on Christ’s Word as ‘My Staff’)

“Am I in good heart by my own strength? I hold His written word. This is my staff, this is my courage, this is to me a calm harbour. Even if the world be troubled, I hold that written word; I look up to those words, they are a wall of strength to me. What are they? I am with you always until the consummation of the world. Christ is with me, whom shall I fear? If waves are raging against me, and the fountains of the deep and the passions of princes, all these things are more insignificant than a cobweb.”— Eloquent Archbishop of Constantinople and early Church Father St. John Chrysostom (c. 349-407 AD), “Built Upon the Rock” (homily before he went into exile)
