The story of St. George is the stuff of legend. He lived during the reign of the Emporer Diocletian from 275 – 303. He was a knight, a soldier, and a dragon slayer. This Friday is his feast day and how apropos that he is one of the saints featured in The Rosary: Your Weapon for Spiritual Warfare, the book we pull our weekly meditations from during our Women of Grace Rosary Crusade.
“Though beheaded, and crucified, and thrown to wild beasts, in chains and fire, and all other tortures, we do not give up our confession; but the more such things happen, the more others, in larger numbers, become believers.”
Martyrdom comes in many forms. In what way may God be asking me to be a “martyr” today?

Feast of St. Vincent, Deacon and Martyr
