Great Royaldevon 2020-06-01 9:53

Ha! Ha! No, your name is Jorge! 😆

George is a very famous saint and important in the theology of many countries.
St. George is the patron saint of England.

You have captured the icon very well, clearly showing the saint at the centre and all his tribulations around the edges. I have definitely learned a little more about our patron saint from your notes.

My warm regards,
Bev :-)

Default To Royaldevon: saint george and me

bev

my name was choose by a religious calendar my mother had, she intended to give me the name of the saint of the day my birth, but it was saint catherine and Catarino sounded some not nice for her and them she moved her finder some days ahead and found george.
in that icon we can see many details of tortures the saint should have suffered, but I didn't know about this. anyway this saint and many others of primitive days of church are legendary like saint cristopher...

take care

jorge
