A public holiday for St George

Please support this campaign to have the 23rd April, the Feast of St George, patron saint of England, made a public holiday. This is a way to counter the de-Christianisation of our public culture.

Click here to vote for it on the campaign website.

Can we have one for St David in Wales as well?

Yes, why not? But the Welsh don't need as much encouragement as the English seem to, to honour their national patron!

Pope Leo XIII's Prayer to St Michael

Holy Michael, Archangel, defend us in the day of battle. Be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou, Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the power of God, thrust down to Hell Satan, and all wicked spirits who wander through the world for the ruin of souls. Amen
