The consecration of the Church of Saint George in Lydda of Palestine took place
during the reign of Saint Constantine the Great. See also April 23.
Apolytikion in the Fourth Tone:
Liberator of captives, defender of the poor, physician of the sick,
and champion of kings, O trophy-bearer, Great Martyr George, intercede
with Christ God that our souls be saved.
Kontakion in the Plagal of the Fourth Tone:
As we the faithful flee for refuge unto thee, O George, and thy protection
and thy speedy help, we now entreat, O prizewinner of Christ Saviour,
that we who hymn thee be delivered from the snares laid by the enemy
and from every kind of peril and adversity, that we all may cry:
Rejoice, O holy Great Martyr George.
