George, Centurion , Martyr - April 23rd

A big day for England and Anglicans was always St. George Day
Cry God for Harry, England and Saint George!
William Shakespeare (Henry V)
There is, in fact, every reason to believe that George was a genuine martyr who suffered at Lydda before the time of Constantine. Indeed, certain accounts record his death to be in the year 307. It is written that George was an officer in the Roman army who, after giving his goods to the poor at the outbreak of persecution, confessing his Christian faith and refusing to sacrifice to the gods, suffered "terrible tortures" which lasted for seven years and was eventually beheaded.
