was a soldier who was martyred during the rule of Emperor Diocletian. The most familiar tale of Saint George is the slaying of the dragon. A dragon infested the lands in Libya and had eaten a vast amount of sheep. The locals, plagued by starvation, soon allowed the dragon to take women instead of sheep. Our Saint heard of the story and killed the dragon with a single blow, converting the locals to Christianity. Saint George
