Sts. Cyril and Methodius: Feast Day, February 14

By you O Mother and Virgin, heaven trembles with elation and the angels and the archangels rejoice. ~St Cyril
Sts. Cyril and Methodius, Co- Patrons (with St Benedict, St Edith Stein, and St Bridget of Sweden) of Europe
"...the funeral Mass was held in all three liturgical languages: Latin, Greek, and Slavonic.  Rivers of faithful who had received Christ through the achievements of these two missionaries flowed for days as they paid their respects after the funeral.Their lives are a testimony of love, pure and simple.  They loved their God and the souls they served more than themselves, and so they gave their lives in honor of that love.  Such is the perfect valentine, if you ask me.  So I say again what I already said, and I mean it: have a very happy Valentine’s Day, today and every day.
