John Chrysostom: good resolutions

Saturday, January 1, 2022
    Feast of the Naming & Circumcision of Jesus
    [Jesus:] “He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes so that it will be even more fruitful.”
    —John 15:2 (NIV)
    When we once begin to form good resolutions, God gives us every opportunity of carrying them out.
    ... St. John Chrysostom (345?-407), quoted in Catena aurea, v. IV, part 1, Thomas Aquinas, Oxford: John Henry Parker, 1845, p. 67 (see the book)
    See also Matt. 25:14-30; Luke 10:40-42; John 1:37-40; 15:2
Quiet time reflection:
    Thank You, Lord, that You use Your people for Your purposes.
