Cyril and Methodius, the cemetery saints
A long time ago, I discovered a great atlas called The Roads of Texas that was published by Texas A&M University. It had large-scale maps of the entire state, and I used it until it literally fell apart. I’ve got a new version now, and use it often to scope out road trips*. In addition to having ALL the roads in the state, it details the sorts of things I like to look at.
And that’s how I found the Saints Cyril and Methodius Cemetery.
(In case you were wondering, the saints were brothers, born in Greece in 826 [or 827] and 815; in 1980, they were declared as co-patron saints of Europe. They are highly regarded by Roman Catholic and Orthodox Christians.)
And I – and now you, maybe – would never known any of this except that I saw the cemetery in the atlas.

*I know – I’m old school like that with my paper maps.
