From the Menaion - 27 January


On 27 January, we commemorate the transfer of the remains of our Father among the Saints, John Chrysostom, Archbishop of Constantinople.

Although dead, you still occupy the throne of a bishop. Alive in God, you still say, "Pease to all" from Heaven. On the twenty-seventh, Byzantium received your body in a golden reliquary with reverent respect.

By his holy prayers, O our God, have mercy on us and save us. Amen.
