St. George's Day
The Flag of England is the St George's Cross. The red cross appeared as an emblem of England during the Middle Ages and the Crusades and is one of the earliest known emblems representing England. In the 13th century St. George became the patron saint of England .
To mark this day the Latin Mass Society held a sung Mass at Ushaw College,near Durham, as well as celebrating this Saint's day , today was the culmination of a training course for priests studying the Traditional Latin Mass at the college. My husband and I attended this Mass and it was a wonderful service, in an awe-inspiring chapel.
Today is also a special day for my youngest daughter's boyfriend ------- HIS BIRTHDAY!!! So many happy returns to G. (and no his name isn't George!!)
