“You were true to your name, O warrior George, * for you took the cross of Christ upon your shoulders. * You ploughed well the land made barren by the deceits of the devil; * you rooted out the weeds of idol worship * and planted the vine of the true faith. * Therefore, your healing overflows to the faithful throughout the whole world, * and you have shown yourself to be the righteous gardener of the Trinity. * Pray for peace in the world and salvation for our souls.”
Today is a very special day for Englishmen, Georgians, Ethiopians, Maltese, Aragonese, Catalonians, and the burgesses of Nizhyn, Ukraine!
Blessed name day of our pastor, Father Iura!
Blessed feast of Saint George!
