Saint George is the patron saint of soldiers, boy scouts and England. The story of George’s slaying the dragon, rescuing the king’s daughter, and converting Libya is a 12th-century Italian fable. However, his willingness to pay the ultimate price is what the Church believes. In preparation for his death, George gave his money to the poor. He was tortured severely but George did not turn from God. His feast day is April 23rd. Buy a medallion or add on a chain to make it a necklace.
