St. John Chrysostom's Teaching on Neighborly Love

Damian, Theodor

For the 4th century C.E., St. John Chrysostom was like a flowing of heaven on earth and a source of God’s mercy upon people. A powerful representative of this century, he contributed substantially to the intensification of Christian faith by raising the cultural awareness of his contemporaries. Thus, Chrysostom contributed to the special brilliance of his century/ the so-called golden century of Christianity.
Even during his lifetime, Chrysostom was well known and highly regarded. This is explained by the fact that St. John Chrysostom, maybe more than the other preachers of the Christian faith, combined harmoniously the principles of Christ’s Gospel consistently with his own lifestyle.
