Still filled with a Holy Love for her Apostles, whose Octave she has concluded, the Church celebrates today the Feast of Saint Cyril and of Saint Methodius, "who both promised, under oath, to persevere in the Faith of Blessed Peter and of the Roman Pontiffs," [Fifth Lesson at Matins] and brought innumerable recruits, to Peter, from among the Bulgarians, Moravians and Bohemians [Hymn at First Vespers].

Brothers by blood,, they were born, in the 9th-Century, at Salonica, Greece, and distinguished themselves by their progress in the sciences at Constantinople.

Anointed Bishops, by Pope Adrian II (Introit, Epistle, Alleluia), they converted the Slavonic nations (Collect). To them is attributed the Slav alphabet; into which tongue they translated the Scriptures and celebrated the Sacred Rites.

Saint Cyril died in 869 A.D., and was buried at Rome, near the Relics of Saint Clement, which he had brought from Chersonesus, Crimea.

Saint Methodius died in 885 A.D.
