St. Demetrius - Commemorated on Saturday, October 20. Great Martyr Demetrios the Myrrh-Flowing and Wonder Worker - He was a Christian and the son of the military commander of Thessalonica in the early fourth century. When his father died, Demetrios was appointed by Emperor Maximian to follow him. Instead Demetrios preached Christianity and confessed his beliefs. He was then placed in a cell. An angel of God appeared to Demetrios telling him to be brave. Soldiers soon came into his cell and killed him with spears. Christians buried him, and his relics began producing a healing fragrant myrrh. A small church was built over his relics, and when a nobleman was healed of an incurable disease, the nobleman built a much larger church there. He is commemorated each year on October 26.
