A Prayer for the (Provisional) Feast Day of Saint George

Almighty God, who didst commission thy holy martyr George to bear before the rulers of this world the banner of the cross: Strengthen us in our battles against the great serpent of sin and evil, that we too may attain the crown of eternal life; through Jesus Christ our Redeemer, who livest and reignest with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

    Why, “(Provisional) Feast Day”? Saint George has been celebrated on April 23rd by Roman Catholics, Eastern Orthodox, Oriental Orthodox and Anglicans for quite some time now. Or has TEc decided that maybe he wasn’t a Greatmartyr after all?

    Saint George was a figure imposed on the English Church and England after and by the Norman conquest. St. Edmund was previously revered, and should be England’s patron.
