The Feast of St. George
The following prayer is traditionally recited on April
23, the feast of St. George. Many Christians wear a
St. George medal or a St. George pendant while reciting
"We humbly beseech Thee, almighty God that Thou
wouldst graciously vouchsafe to grant that we whom Thou
hast refreshed with Thy Sacraments, may be able, through
the intercession of blessed George, Thy Martyr, to serve
Thee by a life well pleasing to Thee. Through our Lord
Jesus Christ, Thy Son, Who liveth and reigneth with
Thee in the unity of the Holy Ghost, world without end.
The following prayer asks for the intercession of St.
George to help Christians overcome temptation and remain
true to Jesus Christ.
St. George Prayer
Faithful servant of God and invincible martyr, Saint
George; favored by God with the gift of faith, and inflamed
with an ardent love of Christ, thou didst fight valiantly
against the dragon of pride, falsehood, and deceit.
Neither pain nor torture, sword nor death could part
thee from the love of Christ. I fervently implore thee
for the sake of this love to help me by thy intercession
to overcome the temptations that surround me, and to
bear bravely the trials that oppress me, so that I may
patiently carry the cross which is placed upon me; and
let neither distress nor difficulties separate me from
the love of Our Lord Jesus Christ. Valiant champion
of the Faith, assist me in the combat against evil,
that I may win the crown promised to them that persevere
unto the end
Saint George and the Dragon
Saint George is usually depicted in artwork as killing
a dragon and saving a lady. Most Christians know him
by this symbolic picture. St. George medals display
the same image of St. George and the dragon which is
symbolic of St. George destroying evil and saving the
truth of God which is the lady. St. George suffered
martyrdom for his true faith in Jesus Christ.
