On July 3, the Church honors the memory of Saint Methodius, Bishop of Patara, who lived in the 3rd-4th centuries in Asia Minor and was known for his monastic humility. He taught his flock the Law of God, tried to fight heresy, demonstrating strength of character and convictions. After Methodius’ death, a large number of his works remained, dedicated to the defense of Christianity, the interpretation of the Holy Scripture. There were also works with dogmas against heresy, various teachings. It is known that in 312 the bishop was captured by pagans and sentenced to death.

And what about the weather? Signs for today:

  • Rain on Methodius Day? It will rain for another forty days.
