Czechs have been marking the state holiday of St. Cyril and Methodius on Saturday. One of the main events was the culmination of the tradition pilgrimage festival at Velehrad in South Moravia at the site where the two saints helped establish Christianity more than 1150 years ago and translated the bible in Slavic languages. In a sermon Prague Cardinal Dominík Duka highlighted how Czechs still owe much to the legacy of the two brothers from Byzantium with the greatest heritage being spiritual not material.
