From The Golden Legend

“Then Saint George said, “Fair daughter, doubt not, for I shall help you in the name of Jesus Christ.”

She said, “For God’s sake, good knight, go your way, for you cannot save me.”

While they were thus talking together the dragon appeared and came running toward them. Saint George, who was on his horse, drew his sword, made the sign of the cross, then rode swiftly toward the dragon. He struck him with his spear, injuring him severely.”
