Day 95 – 5th April: St George (d.303)


St George was martyred in Israel, his cult spread throughout East and West and the legend of the Dragon came sometime afterwards. King Richard I of England placed his army under the protection of St George and his feast was proclaimed as a holiday in 1222.


Almighty God,

As we reflect on St George,

we give thanks for the heroic life he gave

even though he was subject to torture.

Let us look to St George the Patron of England

and ask for his protection in

challenging times and when we ourselves

are defending our faith.

We ask this through Christ your Son, our Lord.

Amen

St George. Pray for us.
