O Liberator of captives and Defender of the poor, Healer of the infirm, Champion of Kings, O victory-clad George, intercede with Christ God to save our souls.
the Holy Fathers
“The motives that drive a person to the life of repentance and prayer and asceticism are three, and God provides all of them:
First, there are those who are called by the law of love which is in their nature, and which original good implanted in them. They achieve the true manner of life, because their souls are ready to follow the love of God. This is the first kind of calling.
Second, there are those who hear the written law testifying of the pains and torments prepared for the wicked, and of the promises for those who walk worthily in the fear of God. By the testimony of the written law, their thoughts are roused up to seek to enter into the calling.
Third, there are the souls which at first were hard of heart and persisted in the works of sin; and somehow the good God in his mercy sends upon such souls the chastisement of affliction, till they grow weary, and come back to their senses, and are converted, and draw near, and enter into knowledge, and repent with all their heart.”
