Quote of the Day: St. John Chrysostom

The grace of love is greater than the grace of resurrecting from the dead.


  1. I've seen this usually as "It is better to feed the hungry than to raise the dead." I used that as the epigraph for my novella, actually. After all, we have the opportunity every day to feed the hungry (or love one another).

  2. Unfortunately I found this in an English-only version, so I don't know whether it's a different quote from yours (which is also beautiful) or whether the two come from the same quote in Greek. Either way it's a good reminder of what our lives as Orthodox should be like!
