St George, Martyr: Patron of England.

Today is St George's Day. St George is the Patron Saint of England. We ask his intercession on the Church in England that it may be always faithful to the Christ and continue to witness with joy to his glorious resurrection.

Collect for the St George's Day:

Lord, hear the prayers of those who praise your mighty power.

As Saint George was ready to follow Christ in suffering and death

so may he be ready to help us in our weakness.

We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,

who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,

one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
St George is also the Patron Saint of Gozo, the sister island of Malta. Here is the link to see the cult of St George in that island:
