St. Mercurius

St. Mercurius was a military hero following a battle with the barbarians. It is said that during the First Crusade, he helped St. Demetrius and St. George. For this reason he is seen as a warrior saint. St. Mercurius was martyred when he refused to sacrifice to pagan gods. He died circa 250 in what is now Turkey.
