Saint Demetrios was born in Thesaloniki, Greece in 270 A.D. He became a high ranking officer in the Roman Army at a very young age. He considered himself a soldier of Christ first, and a military soldier second. He spent most of his time as a devout missionary, preaching the Gospel at secret meetings and converting pagans to the Christian faith. In 306 A.D. Saint Demetrios was executed and buried at the place of his execution and because of the beautiful scent that emanated from his tomb, he was named Mirovlitis or “The Myrrh Gusher”.
