The story of St. George is the stuff of legend. He lived during the reign of the Emporer Diocletian from 275 - 303. He was a knight, a soldier, and a dragon slayer. This Friday is his feast day and how apropos that he is one of the saints featured in The Rosary: Your Weapon for Spiritual Warfare, the book we pull our weekly meditations from during our Women of Grace Rosary Crusade.

Becoming a Martyr
Feast of St. Justin Martyr
“Though beheaded, and crucified, and thrown to wild beasts, in chains and fire, and all other tortures, we do not give up our confession; but the more such things happen, the more others, in larger numbers, become believers.”
Martyrdom comes in many forms. In what way may God be asking me to be a “martyr” today?

Feast of St. Vincent, Deacon and Martyr
January 22 Feast of St. Vincent, Deacon and Martyr
"Against Christ's army the world arrays a twofold battle line. It offers temptation to lead us astray; it strikes terror into us to break our spirit. At both of these approaches, Christ rushes to our aid, and the Christian is not conquered."
--From a homily of St. Augustine on St. Vincent
