Description

Commemorated by the Church on 24 May, Saints Cyril and Methodius were born into the devout family of an army commander in Thessaloniki, Greece. Michael was the eldest, and Cyril was the youngest. When they grew up, they left their parental home, and their ways parted for some time.

At 27, Michael became a wise governor in the Slavic lands, but, yearning for a deeper purpose, he took monastic vows at 37, taking the name Methodius.

Meanwhile, the youngest son, Constantine, travelled to Constantinople to study. There, he displayed exceptional ability and was appointed to tutor the future emperor. He had mastered six languages, including Slavic, which he knew to perfection. Yet, he too felt drawn to a spiritual life and joined Methodius in a monastery.

In 862, the Byzantine emperor tasked them with spreading Christianity in Moravia. Upon discovering the lack of Slavic scriptures and Latin-dominated services, Constantine famously declared, "Who can write on water?" – sparking his mission to create a Slavic alphabet.

By 863, the Glagolitic alphabet was born, along with translated liturgical books and scriptures. The brothers' work laid the foundation for the Cyrillic script, later developed by Saint Clement of Ohrid, which spread Christianity and literacy in Bulgaria, across Serbia and to the Kievan Rus.

Tragically, during their time in Rome, Constantine fell ill. A divine vision revealed his impending death, prompting him to take monastic vows and the name Cyril.
