John of Chrysostom

O God, You gave Your servant John of Chrysostom grace to proclaim the Gospel with eloquence and power. As bishop of the great congregations of Antioch and Constantinople, John fearlessly bore reproach for the honor of Your name. Mercifully grant to your church pastors who are like John in preaching and fidelity in their ministry of the Word to Your people, and grant that we all be partakers of the divine nature through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord, who lives and rules with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.
