Holy Great-Martyr George + May 6
Blessed Feast Day to our many St. George parishes!
As the deliverer of captives and the protector of the poor, as the physician of the feeble and combatant of kings, holy champion and great martyr George, intercede with Christ our God to save our souls. + Troparion of St. George, Tone 4
Thou wast cultivated by God and didst become a most wonderful cultivator of piety, and didst harvest for thyself the sheaves of virtue, for having sown in tears thou didst reap in joy and having withstood to death thou art garnered for Christ. By thy intercessions, O Saint, thou dost obtain for us all remission of our sins. + Kontakion of St. George, Tone 4
(If April 23 falls on or before Great and Holy Pascha, the Feast of St. George is translated to Bright Monday.)
