St George’s Day

st george

Today, the 23rd of April is St George’s Day, the patron saint of England. Nobody knows how he came to be patron saint of England and we know very little about him except that he probably lived in the 4th century, was martyred and by the 6th century had become a very popular saint. The legend of his dragon doesn’t even appear until the 12th century, but it is that which I would like to think about today because I think it has some relevance for us…
