Saint Great Martyr Demetrius, the Myrrh Bearer…and Saint Pious Demetrius Basarabov or the New, the second being from Bulgaria.
And namely a greek and abulgarian are Saints whom we celebrate in these days inluminous mode.
But in comparison with the first, the second Demetrius was his village’s cowboy…and, later, he became hermit.
And the Church does not honor them as Saints because the one was governor and another hermit, but because they both lived and died orthodox.
The fidelity, the faithfulness to God is the main reason for their canonization. For that, as in marriage, what matters is inner unity, fidelity of the spouses, which does not make them separate from each other.
