April, 2019: Happy St George’s Day!

With sincere apologies to our English bloggers and readers – I completely forgot to post a thread to mark the Feast of St George on 23 April – and since we’ve posted Feast Day threads for St Andrew, St Patrick and St David, I decided to copy last year’s St George’s thread… and hope nobody noticed 😀

Hopefully, all Catholic Truth readers, bloggers and visitors to this site remembered to offer a prayer for the hierarchy of England on the Feast of the national Patron Saint, imploring all the graces necessary for them to begin the work of restoring the traditional Catholic Faith in their land, which bears the beautiful title of “Dowry of Mary”.

Belated Feast Day greetings to one and all! 

St George of England, pray for us!   

23/4 – Feast of St George of England!

23rd April: Feast of St George

St George of England

Prayer to St. George

St. George,

Heroic Catholic soldier and defender of your Faith, you dared to criticize a tyrannical Emperor and were subjected to horrible torture. You could have occupied a high military position but you preferred to die for your Lord.

Obtain for us the great grace of heroic Christian courage that should mark soldiers of Christ. Amen

 

Comments invited – what, in your opinion, would St George think about what is happening in England today… And as with all Feast Day threads, feel free to share favourite prayers, hymns, stories and jokes.
