First and foremost is Saint Michael the Archangel. Who isn’t familiar with Saint George the Dragon Slayer or the brave and daring Saint Joan of Arc? What Catholic child isn’t captivated by the stories of the Crusaders?
Many of the Military Saint profiles were taken from the excellent website Catholics in the Military. Please visit their site to learn more about how you can pray for and support our modern day Catholic Warriors. It is certainly not politically correct to say so, but can there be any doubt that we are now in the midst of a Holy War? Even if we don’t call it that – our enemies do. We invite you to explore the very affordable costumes presented here as well as some military and warrior saints you might not be too familiar with.

God’s most powerful warrior – next to Mary!

He is the champion of all God’s people.

|Saint George the Dragon Slayer
George was born in Cappadocia (eastern Turkey) of Christian parents. Following his father’s death, George was taken by his mother to her native land of Palestine. Here the young man entered the Roman Army, rising to the rank of tribune. When the Roman emperor Diocletian began a fierce persecution of Christianity, George relinquished all his military titles, protesting directly to the emperor against his brutal edicts. For his courage, George was immediately imprisoned and subjected to tortures in a fruitless effort to shake his resolve. The following day, he was paraded through the streets and beheaded. There is a legend that while in the Roman Army George came to the rescue of a “damsel in distress”. Mounting his horse, the young soldier, after making the sign of the cross, struck down and slew a dragon that was threatening to devour the girl. Hence George is conventionally depicted on horseback trampling a dragon. The maiden is depicted kneeling nearby, praying for her hero as he risks his life to save her. George is the patron saint of England. An account of Saint George appearing in a vision at the Crusaders’ victorious battle for Antioch in 1098 led to him becoming a popular patron among men in military service.

|Having full command of France’s military at the age of seventeen, Joan of Arc’s historical biography is presented to us through records of a court trial, making hers “the only story of a human life which comes to us under oath.” From the age of 13, Joan followed the prompting of St. Michael, St. Catherine and St. Margaret, sent as God’s messengers to guide Joan’s great mission: to find the true king of France and aid him in reclaiming his rightful throne. “It is God who commands it,” the saints assured the young Maid of Orleans. Joan carried her sword into battle merely as a symbol of authority. Her banner pictured God the Father enthroned with angels at his feet with the inscription “Jesus, Mary” on the one side, the crown of France and angels on the other. Though her miraculous military victories set King Charles VII on his rightful thrown, the French nonetheless betrayed Joan into the hands of the English who tried Joan as a witch and ordered her to be burned at the stake. Twenty-three years later, her cause was acquitted. Beatified by Pope St. Pius X in 1905, she was canonized 15 years later and is the patron saint of soldiers.||Medieval Knight
