HAPPY ST. GEORGE'S DAY!!
A Roman soldier who protected the Christians and was eventually martyred for his faith, St. George is also the Patron saint of England, who use his own cross emblem as their state flag!
We use the symbol of the dragon in the mythological story of St. George, as a representation of the "dragons" who attack our faith and cause us to stumble along the way. Boys are called to be like St. George, who makes a great heroic figure for them to emulate!
Wear a red rose today if you are English and enjoy your day!
