Holy Bishops and Confessors.
In the 9th century, the Slavic race, which spread throughout Eastern Europe, was brought to the knowledge of Christ through the apostolic work of these two holy brothers, who evangelized the peoples of Moravia and Bohemia, Bulgaria and Poland, and penetrated as far as Muscovy. They accommodated the characters of the Greek alphabet into the Slavic language, into which they translated Holy Scripture and liturgical books. Cyril died in Rome (869); Methodius, in Moravia (885).
V: Saints Cyril and Methodius.
