In His address for the Feast His Eminence paid tribute to the Patron Saint of the Cathedral and made special mention of the fact that Saint George is not only the  Patron Saint of the Church but also of the Orthodox Faithful of Cape Town and the environs.
He said that many miracles known and unknown are attributed to Saint George.  The Saints that were martyred in the name of  Christ, have also been crowned by Him. Their  lives present us with  an example to follow. His Eminence made reference to the ancient Orthodox Church of Saint George in Cairo which is very well known and visited by Orthodox Faithful and  scholars of Archeology. The church is also visited by thousands upon thousands of Muslims who come to seek a blessing and help from the saint.
