Optional Memorial of St. George, Martyr; St. Adalbert, Bishop and Martyr

Fairy tales do not give a child his first idea of bogy. What fairy tales give the child is his first clear idea of the possible defeat of the bogy. The baby has known the dragon intimately ever since he had an imagination. What the fairy tale provides for him is a St. George to kill the dragon.

— G.K. Chesterton
