St George, Martyr

St George

Son of an illustrious family of Cappadocia, St George was elevated at a young age by Diocletian to one of the highest offices of the Imperial ministry. When the Emperor promulgated an edict against Christians, St George professed his faith publicly. He died in 303. He is the Patron saint of England and is generally represented as engaged in combat with a dragon

O God, You gladden us by the merits and intercession of Blessed George, Your Martyr; mercifully grant that we who ask Your blessings through him, may obtain them by the gift of Your grace. Through Our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen
