MEMORIAL OF JOHN CHRYSOSTOM, BISHOP, DOCTOR OF THE CHURCH

Preach often—use words when necessary

Glossophobia—fear of public speaking—is one of the most common forms of anxiety, affecting a sizeable portion of the population. Saint John Chrysostom was not a sufferer. His name means “golden-mouthed”—and was he ever. Renowned as a preacher, his sermons could last up to two hours. (Think about that the next time your pastor runs a bit long!) Few of us are that eloquent as speakers, but all of us are called to be witnesses to our faith in words and deeds. There’s no need to impress—let your actions speak for you. Never fear living your discipleship humbly and sharing what’s in your heart. The truth always speaks volumes.

Today’s readings:

1 Timothy 2:1-8; Luke 7:1-10 (443).

“Say the word and let my servant be healed.”
