Feast of Saints Cyril and Methodius
O God, who enlightened the Slavic peoples through the brothers Saints Cyril and Methodius, grant that our hearts may grasp the words of your teaching, and perfect us as a people of one accord in true faith and right confession. We ask this in the name of your son, Jesus, amen.

Saint John Baptist de La Salle – Pray for us! 
Live Jesus in our Hearts – Forever!
