Feast of St. George, Martyr (? – 303?)
“Saint George was a man who abandoned one army for another: he gave up the rank of tribune to enlist as a soldier for Christ … Clearly what he did serves to teach us a valuable lesson: if we are afraid to strip ourselves of worldly possessions, then we are unfit.”
--St. Peter Damian on St. George
To what am I attached more than to Christ? Am I willing to be “stripped” so as to be made fit?
