Your servant George is a sign for us of the beauty of those who slay dragons, follow the quest for a world of justice and peace; who live nobly and are unafraid.
The white-robed army of martyrs praise you:
Throughout the world the holy church acclaims you.

We pray that we may find our quest in life, that young people may dream dreams and see visions, that none may be bound by unemployment or lack of opportunity.
The white-robed army of martyrs praise you:
Throughout the world the holy church acclaims you.

We pray that all humanity may live with nobility and dignity, that all will be freed from those things that diminish your image in us, the misuse of bodies or minds.

Throughout the world the holy church acclaims you.
