The Day of Bulgarian Alphabet, Education and Culture - 24 May

Last year I missed this eagerly-awaited day by many Bulgarians - the Day of Bulgarian Alphabet and Culture. So, I was happy this time we can all go together downtown. Before that Stefan graduated from first grade and his class had a short program. Afterwards we went downtoan and saw all the schools marching in a line, in their beautiful uniforms, waving flags, carrying their schools' signs, portrets of their patrons, etc. In this picturesque setting I thought that a great thing Cyril and Methodius have passed down to us. At the same time, it's a pity that today most people are unaware about why they did this. Their message to us is that the good news of the God-man Jesus Christ should reach to each person, language and nation. Alas, the nation which gave this great writing and the knowledge of Christ to many other nations today is blind and death to the call of the apostles of national revival.
