Troparion to Saint George
SINCE thou art a liberator and deliverer of captives, a help and succour of the poor and needy, a healing physician of the sick, a contender and fighter for kings, O great among Martyrs, the victory-clad George; intercede with Christ God for the salvation of our souls.


St. George the Great Martyr
from the Greek Orthodox Children's Book
Chrisitina's Favorite Saints
by Maria C. Khoury, Ed. D..
Saint George is one of the most popular saints in the world. So many different stories have been told about him throughout the years. He lived in the late third century. A very cruel Emperor named Diocletian was in charge of the Roman Empire. He hated Christians. Saint George was a Christian warrior and a very brave fighter. He served in the army of Rome as an officer. He loved Christ very much. After many years he finally stopped serving the army because he could not worship the pagan gods.
Many people say Saint George was from England but this is only a legend. Saint George was really a Syrian because he was born in a country called Syria. He was tortured and died for Christ in Nikomedia, a town in Asia Minor in 303 A.D. The courage of Saint George helped many people become Christians.
The icon of Saint George on his horse killing the dragon shows us the fight between good and evil. Saint George represents the Sons of Light and the dragon represents the Dragon of Darkness. The first church to have Saint George’s name was built by Emperor Constantine the Great in the Holy Land. Afterwards many churches carried the name Saint George. He is one of the greatest martyrs for Christ.
Christina loves Saint George because George is the name of her grandfather and this saint teaches us to stand up for our faith in Christ. We remember Saint George the Great Martyr on April 23.
