Feast of St. John "The Golden Mouthed" Chrysostom

Homilies Against The Jews

by St. John Chrysostom, Church Father & Doctor 

"But today the Jews, who are more dangerous than any wolves, are bent on surrounding my sheep;

so I must spar with them and fight with them so that no sheep of mine may fall victim to those wolves." 


"For the martyrs have a special hatred for the Jews since the Jews crucified him for whom they have a special love.

The Jews said: 'His blood be on us and on our children' the martyrs poured out their own blood for him whom the

Jews had slain. So the martyrs would be glad to hear this discourse." -St. John Chrysostom, Church Doctor


St. John St. Chrysostom

(Bishop & Doctor of the Church)


"The temple was already a den of thieves when the Jewish common- wealth and way of life still prevailed. Now you give it a name more worthy than it deserves if you call it a brothel, a stronghold of sin, a lodging-place for demons, a fortress of the devil, the destruction of the soul, the precipice and pit of all perdition, or whatever other name you give it."

  • Homily I: "Tell me this. If a man were to have slain your son, would you endure to look upon him, or accept his greeting? Would you not shun him as a wicked demon, as the devil himself?"


  • Homily II"How do you Judaizers have the boldness, after dancing with demons, to come back to the assembly of the apostles?"


  • Homily III: "If you separate yourself from the flock, your enemy will surely catch you."


  • Homily IV: "...what goes on in the synagogue is godlessness."


  • Homily V: "[Christ] said to Peter: "Upon this rock I will build my Church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it." You Jews tell me how you can attack this prediction of his."


  • Homily VI: "You did slay Christ, you did lift violent hands against the Master, you did spill his precious blood. This is why you have no chance for atonement, excuse, or defense."


  • Homily VII: "...the temple will never rise again ...the sacrifices of the Jews and their priesthood have completely ended."


  • Homily VIII: "We must not grow weary... we must not became exhausted."

Euthanasia is now a leading cause of death in Canada only a few years after being "legalized". A person can be granted, by the Canadian government, approval to kill themselves over the so called health condition of hearing loss!

Thank you from a Catholic in Sweden! 500 years after the Reformation-Schism robbed the people here of their Catholic faith, the church is returning. Hallelujah!
