Icon - Άγιος Γεώργιος (Pre Order 2-4 weeks)
Agios Georgios, a great and glorious Martyr of Christ. Being a military tribune, he was illustrious in battle and highly honoured for his courage. Saint George went on to become a talented officer and to amaze the world by his military exploits. He died before he was thirty years old. He is known as Victory Bearer, not only for his military achievements, but for successfully enduring martyrdom.
Agios Georgios gave thanks to God and prayed that he would also end his life in a worthy manner. At the place of execution, the saint prayed that the Lord would forgive the torturers who acted in ignorance and that He would lead them to the knowledge of Truth. Calmly and bravely, the holy Great Martyr George bent his neck beneath the sword, receiving the crown of martyrdom.
He is known as one of the Fourteen Holy Helpers and one of the most prominent military saints. Άγιος Γεώργιος is a particularly loved and venerated Saint in Greece. He is the patron Saint of the Hellenic Army and Infantry, as well as the patron Saint of numerous Greek cities, towns and villages.
