St METHODIUS

Christian Saint

Patriarch of Constantinople.

A Sicilian monk, he was very fond of Icons and came into conflict with the Iconoclasts who wanted to destroy all religious images.

They had the upper hand at the time and meted out very harsh treatment to our Saint. He was thrown into a very cramped unsanitary cell which already contained two thieves.

When one thief died he was left to fester in-situ. The Emperor of Constantinople reveled in vile behavior.

Happily the Emperor was replaced by the Empress Theodora who restored orthodoxy and icons. She not only freed Meth but gave him top slot.

The remaining thief, now converted to Christianity, was also freed. It is always refreshing when we get a happy ending.
