St. John Chrysostom's  letter to St. Maron
To Maron, presbyter and monk,
" We are bound together with you by love and by disposition, and we see you here as if you are present. For such is the vision of love: not cut off by a road, not faded by time. And we also wanted to send letters to you more frequently your Reverence, but because this is not easily possible on account of the difficulty of the road and the lack of travelers, whenever it is possible we greet your Dignity and we make known to you that we keep you in our memory continuously, carrying you around in our soul, wherever we are. Inform us then also yourself about your health more frequently, so that though separated in body, when constantly learning the state of your strength, we may lift our spirits, and though residing in isolation, we may receive much consolation. For hearing about your health conveys no small joy to us. And above all, be so kind as to pray for us.”
 John Chrysostom ( d. 407 AD), Archbishop of Constantinople, was an important Early Church Father. He is known for his preaching and public speaking, his denunciation of abuse of authority by both ecclesiastical and political leaders, the Divine Liturgy of Saint John Chrysostom, and his ascetic sensibilities.
