St Cyril and Hypatia
Yesterday was the feast of St Cyril of Alexandria. As I sat in the chapel for the morning prayers and realised the saint of the day, I couldn't help my mind drift to the movie, Agora. The portrayal of St Cyril as someone who was truly passionate about spreading Christianity at all costs, does raise lots of questions about the methods and the means used by the 'saints' then. However, to judge them sitting in our plush 21st century offices would be too much of an injustice to their hard and sincere efforts. However, I am glad I saw the movie, Agora. Sad but inspiring. God bless both, Cyril and Hypatia.
