Today is Saint Cyril's day. Because Saint Cyril was the greatest missionary to the Slavs, the Cyrillic alphabet is named after him. Cyril died 1143 years ago today.
It is also the day of Saint Methodius, Cyril's brother. So far as I can tell there are no other saints in the current Romish liturgical calendar for today, although there is a petition to have a certain chap reinstated.
For those of you who can bear the sound of my horrid, nasal voice.
