Of course you realize...

I note -- not gladly, nor with surprise -- that St. Blogs has been eerily silent about the War on the Memorial of Sts. Cyril and Methodius.

And yet, not one major retailer respects Catholics enough to pander for our dollars. It's all Valentine this and Valentine that. Hallmark, which makes a bazillion dollars off February 14, doesn't even offer a single Happy Sts. Cyril and Methodius Day card. Search Google for "Cyril and Methodius Day jewelry", and the result tells you all you need to know.

Are we to just lie down and be stepped on like this? Or ought we rather to resist, to boycott this anti-Catholic "Valentine's Day" festival, this poke in the eye to our Church?
