Today, June 27, is the Feast of St. Cyril of Alexandria. Cyril is counted among the Church Fathers and the Doctors of the Church.
To commemorate the saint on this feast day, the Daily Vine spoke to Father Mario J. Arroyo, pastor of St. Cyril of Alexandria in Houston, about the importance of St. Cyril of Alexandria in the life of the Church and the relation to religious liberty.
Take a few moments to reflect on Father Mario J. Arroyo’s interview. How does St. Cyril of Alexandria speak to you today?
