Veneration of St. George comes to us from the east, probably from Palestine where he was held in high honor as a martyr. Regarded as the patron of Christian armies he is venerated under this title by the Latins as well as by the Greeks. In Rome there is a sanctuary built in his honor, St. George in Velabro, at which the station is held on the Thursday after Ash Wednesday.
