NOVENA TO SAINT GEORGE,
SOLDIER AND MARTYR
(Feast April 23)
Prayer to Saint George
Faithful servant of God and invincible martyr, St. George; favored by God with the gift of faith, and inflamed with an ardent love of Christ, thou didst fight valiantly against the dragon of pride, falsehood, and deceit. Neither pain nor torture, sword nor death could part thee from the love of Christ.
I fervently implore thee for the sake of this love to help me by thy intercession to overcome the temptations that surround me, and to bear bravely the trials that oppress me, so that I may patiently carry the cross which is placed upon me, and let neither distress nor difficulties separate me from the love of Our Lord Jesus Christ.
Valiant champion of the Faith, assist me in the combat against evil, that I may win the crown promised to them that persevere unto the end. Amen.
Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be
Let us pray,
O God, who didst grant to St. George strength and constancy in the various torments which he sustained for our holy faith; we beseech Thee to preserve, through his intercession, our faith from wavering and from doubt, so that we may serve Thee with a sincere heart faithfully unto death. Through Christ Our Lord. Amen.
Saint George, pray for us!
Saint Michael, pray for us!
Our Lady of Victory, pray for us!
