Ss Cyril and Methodius

A happy Feast day to our European readers on this Feast of the co-patrons of Europe.

I don't know why but I have long been a fan of these Saints, I am not Slavonic and am a Tory voter so anti-Europe, and I don't have a particular devotion to either of the brother bishops.

I have been thinking about it today and the answer came as a lady was handing out love hearts at the coffee morning after Mass wishing everyone a Happy Valentines Day. It is the paganisation of this great Martyr and the reduction of his Feast day to nothing but lustful imagery that causes me to emphasise Ss Cyril and Methodius.

So, once again a Happy Ss Cyril and Methodius Day to one and all!

I was rather miffed to have received no Cyril and Methodius day cards yesterday.
