Claimed skulls of St. John Chrysostom is located in the Cathedral in Florence, in a Roman Catholic shrine in Pisa, in Moscow and on Mount Athos in Greece.
John Chrysostom (347–407.AD) was Archbishop of Constantinople, and considered an important Early Church Father.
He is recognized by the Eastern Orthodox Church and the Catholic Church as a saint and as a Doctor of the Church.
It is worth noticing that the Roman Catholic Church has admitted that they stole the remains of the Byzantine priest, and took it to Rome. The present Pope returned the stolen bones, explained by wikipedia.
Most of John’s relics were looted from Constantinople by Crusaders in 1204 and taken to Rome, but some of his bones were returned to the Orthodox on 27 November 2004 by Pope John Paul II.
Neither theft of bones, nor grave looting, seems to be noble acts.
But the battle for the corpse, skull and bones of this archbishop is more grotesque than this example of criminal priests becoming robbers. There are four Churches who claim to have the skull of the same “saint”. One in Russia, one in Greece and not less than two Roman Catholic Churches in Italy.
Let us again read that wikipedia has recorded:
The skull was kept at the Moscow Kremlin, in the Cathedral of the Dormition of the Mother of God, until 1920, when it was confiscated by the Soviets and placed in the Museum of Silver Antiquities.
In 1988, in connection with the 1000th Anniversary of the Baptism of Russia, the Head, together with other important relics, was returned to the Russian Orthodox Church and kept at the Epiphany Cathedral, until being moved to the Cathedral of Christ the Saviour after its restoration.
However, today, the Vatopedi Monastery posits a rival claim to possession of the skull of St. John Chrysostom, and there a skull is venerated by pilgrims to the monastery as that of St John.
Two places in Italy also claim to have the skull of St. John Chrysostom: the Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore in Florence and the Dal Pozzo chapel in Pisa.
Lets take a look at the other three claimed version of the skull of this man who died more than 1.600 years ago:
You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me.
There you will worship man-made gods of wood and stone, which cannot see or hear or eat or smell.
A major Roman Catholic news agency has reported “miracles’ from one of these skulls. Remarkably not with the two versions found in Roman Catholic shrines.
Two miraculous cures have been reported in Cyprus as a result of contact with the skull of St. John Chrysostom, according to the Associated Press. Father Paraskevas Agathonos claimed the visiting relic, which normally resides in a monastery in northern Greece, had healed a partially paralyzed teenager and a woman with a broken leg.

For false Christs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and miracles to deceive even the elect—if that were possible.
The Russians are trilled that their “holy head” paid New York City a visit in February 2010:
The sacred head will not be touring America, but will remain at Synod until the final day of its stay, when it will be taken to St. Nicholas Cathedral, the Russian Patriarchal Cathedral a few blocks away.
The head of St. John Chrysostom is being sent to the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Sign, in New York City, from the Church of Christ the Saviour, in Moscow, for a week, early in February. (2010, February 26).
First: We have to give thanks to Jesus the Messiah for exposing all this religious fraud, so people can get a chance to be delivered, to repent and be saved.
Second: It is difficult to use suitable words for this kind of morbid spiritual madness. Only a spirit that has its origin in the bottomless pit, can make priests, bishops, cardinals and Popes fight to gain control of skulls, corpses and bones.
That this war goes on up to this very day, should have been used as an eye opener for all men on the face of the Earth. All seven billion of us.
The Roman Catholic Church claim to be the original, the true “Holy mother Church”. But she does not only adore and venerate skulls in their hundreds. This Church even have double sets of skulls.
The Russian Orthodox and Greek Orthodox “Churches” and members of World Council of Churches (WCC). They do not seem to make much a difference.
What better proof do you need to see that these are religious movements of liars who are involved in shameless fraud?
It is difficult to phantom that the Vatican can “bless” two claimed skulls of the same man, and both of them being located in Roman Catholic “shrines” in Italy.
If you are not able to renounce this horrible wicked and perverted religious movement, I can not help you. No message of corruption and fraud linked to the Papacy will make you repent, and escape the waiting eternal lake of fire.
There is a judgment coming. The judgment will be both fair and just.
Repent or perish.
