St Dioscorus' response to Empress Pulcheria
I vaguely recall reading/hearing somewhere that when Empress Pulcheria slapped Pope Dioscorus on the face, he responded with reference to the tragedy that befell St John Chrysostom. If anyone has more information or references on this, I would appreciate it. My aim is to establish that St Dioscorus was sympathetic to St John Chrysostom despite the fact his uncle (St Cyril) and great uncle (St Theophilus) both contributed to his downfall.

"Come and incline your ear to the voice of your Mother who gives you life by the sweet music of her voice. Come and suck the sweet milk of Orthodox doctrine from the living breast of the Mother who bore you" - St Philoxenus of Mabug
