Ss. George and Demetrius icon
Contemporary Orthodox icon with Saints George and Demetrius.
Saint George and Saint Demetrius are two of the popular warrior saints. They are shown as warriors not because this was important for their saint hood but because of their occupation. Bothe Saint George and Saint Demetrius were martyred for standing true in their witness to the truth of the Incarnation and Resurrection of Jesus Christ who was bot fully man and fully God. We can view these Martyrs as heavenly protectors. They are soldiers fighting against evil on our behalf. They can be trusted as our protectors because of the bravery they demonstrated that was beyond any earthly soldier in withstanding extreme tortures and death rather than forsake Christ.
