Thought for the Day -14 February
Sts Cyril and Methodius were thrust into a totally unexpected task, requiring astonishing energy, flexibility and presenting immense challenges. They evangelised a whole people and brought them the treasures of the Christian faith. Faith is prepared for the unexpected and adapts itself to new and changing circumstances. Holiness means reacting to human life with God’s love: human life as it is, crisscrossed with the political and the cultural, the beautiful and the ugly, the selfish and the saintly. For Cyril and Methodius much of their daily cross had to do with the language of the liturgy. They are not saints because they got the liturgy into Slavonic but because they did so with the courage and humility of Christ.
St Cyril and St Methodius, Pray for us!
