JE #50

Today is the commemoration of Cyril and Methodius, missionaries to the Slavs.

Cyril and Methodius translated the liturgy and much of the Bible for the Slavs. But as Slavonic had no written form they first invented an alphabet, later to be known as Cyrillic, to accomplish their task.
 Then I saw another angel flying directly overhead, with an eternal gospel to proclaim to those who dwell on earth, to every nation and tribe and language and people. And he said with a loud voice, “Fear God and give him glory, because the hour of his judgment has come, and worship him who made heaven and earth, the sea and the springs of water.”
(Revelation 14:6-7 ESV)
