Saint George lived during the ninth century. His parents arranged a marriage for him, but he refused to marry the woman they had chosen. He entered the monastery on Mount Maleon in the Peloponnesus, and many disciples gathered around him. He was able to see the future, and predicted his own death three years before it occurred. He fell asleep in the Lord in the sixth century.
In the service to him, St George is called an earthly angel and a wonderworker.
