Book of Saints – Memorius and Others

main article for Saint Memorius of TroyesArticle

(Saints) Martyrs (September 7) (5th century) The Roman Martyrology registers this Saint as “Nemorius”; popularly he is known as Saint Mesmin. He was a deacon of the Church of Troyes in France, sent by the Bishop, Saint Lupus, with several companions, to the camp of Attila the Hun, who was threatening the city, to beg of him to spare it. The Barbarian leader, however, seized them and put them all to death. There are various accounts extant of the circumstances of this martyrdom, and not all of them are trustworthy. The fact of the cultus of the victims from the earliest ages is at least undoubted. The Relics of Saint Memorius escaped the fury of the Revolutionists of 1792, and are still in popular veneration.
