Saint George

Today, the western Church remembers the Feast of Saint George. Matthew of Shrine of the Holy Whapping takes a good look at the feast, and the legends surrounding it. St George is also the patron saint of Boy Scouting, and in the UK and elsewhere, it was common for Scouts young and old to hold a "St George's Banquet" in his honor.
