Hurrah the Feast of Saint George
The image is a photo I took of a tile in Jerusalem last December. If I were to have a patron saint, I should think it would be St. George. Today is the Feast of St. George, patron saint of cavalrymen and horsemen generally, of Dragonslayers, and I trust of bikers.
There is an impressive list of 'Alternative Second Readings' today, for those of you who keep up with such things. They all have to do with being prepared for persecution for being a Christian.
2 Cor. 4:7-15
2 Cor. 6:4-10
2 Timothy 2:8-13,3:10-12
1 Peter 3:14-17
1 Peter 4:12-19
1 John 5:1-5
The Gospel reading, if you are still inclined after all of that, is John 15:18-21.
