Exhortation to Theodore, After His Fall

by St. John Chrysostom


An Exhortation to Theodore After John Chrysostom wrote His Fall. By the title, one might wonder what sin Theodore had committed. The"fall" was falling in love with a lady and wanting to renounce his monastic vows. John, Theodore's friend since childhood, writes these letters to remind Theodore of his covenant with God. The consequences of breaking the sacred vow are also part of these appeals.
