St. George is my patron saint;, his Holy Day is Tuesday April 23rd. He was from Cappadocia, which is in modern day Turkey. He was killed by the Romans for campaigning for the rights of the slaves. His mother was from the city of Lydda, a city in Palestine where the legend says he killed the dragon. A church was built in Lydda during the reign of Constantine (306–337 BC); it was consecrated to St. George.
One day I saw vision of a sacred lake. I was under a portico looking out at it; it was very lush, there was table there, and on it was a tapestry like a thick blanket that had the cross of St George on it. A being came and put it around my shoulders.
Later, I saw 5,000 knights of St. George around the lake of Avalon, which is a real place here on earth.
They were mounted on horse back, shoulder-to-shoulder. Then they all dismounted, and they went down on one knee and they made the sign of the cross saying in unison, “Sacred sacred, holy holy,” and then they all touched the ground saying “Here now”. That is the prayer of St. George. It was an extraordinary sight to see. They had come to honor a goddess, a human goddess, a legendary fighter that had brought great honor to their regiment, she had come to visit them at the lake. It was the autumn of 2007.
I’m off from Sunday night midnight till Tuesday 12.01 am. St. Georges day. I need time to renew my vow. Thank you….Stuart Wilde www,stuartwilde.com
P.S. On my gravestone, I would like to have my name and the words “A Soldier,” because that properly and exactly, describes what I did in this lifetime–nothing less, nothing more.
Saint George (c. 275/281 – 23 April 303 AD) was a Greek who became an officer in the Roman army. His father was the Greek Gerondios from Cappadocia Asia Minor and his mother was from the city Lydda.
