St George


St George was a brave martyr who was victorious over the devil. A man without fear, he was a soldier in the army of the Roman Emperor Diocletian. He gave up his position because of the emperor’s persecution of Christians. St George was then tortured and then suffered martyrdom  at Lydda in Palestine, probably before the time of Constantine. He showed bravery and died a soldier of Christ. St George is the patron saint of England.
