The Law

The Troops of Saint George Law was written by Saint Peter, our first Pope:

1. “Honor all men.
2. Love the brotherhood.
3. Fear God.
4. Honor the King.” (1 Peter 2:17)


The Motto: Parati Semper

The motto of the Troops of Saint George is “Parati Semper”, which also comes from Saint Peter, our
first Pope:

“But sanctify the Lord Christ in your hearts, being prepared always (parati semper) to satisfy every one
that asketh you a reason of that hope which is in you.” (1 Peter 3:15)

“Dominum autem Christum sanctificate in cordibus vestris parati semper ad satisfactionem omni
poscenti vos rationem de ea quae in vobis est spe.” (1 Peter 3:15, Latin Vulgate)


The Oath

The Troops of Saint George Oath was written by the Apostle Paul (1 Timothy 4:12), and defines the
five traits of the man who seeks to be a disciple of Our Lord Jesus Christ by patterning his life after
Saint George of Lydda.

“Set an example:
1. in speech (in verbo)
2. and conduct (in conversatione)
3. in love (in caritate)
4. in faith (in fide)
5. in purity (in castitate).” (1 Timothy 4:12)


The Trinitarian Salute

The Troops of Saint George salute their officers, the national flag, banners of the saints and Our Lady,
and crucifixes with the “Trinitarian Salute” – three fingers of the right hand (index, middle, ring) out,
and with the pinky and thumb joined signifying that the divine nature of Christ is joined to His human
nature: fully God and fully man as taught at the Catholic Council of Chalcedon in AD 431.
