St Hermes: refused to disclose where sacred scriptures were hidden

Today is the feast of St Hermes who was a priest at Heraclea, near Constantinople. He, along with Saints Phillip, Severus and Eusebius was detained and interrogated as to the whereabouts of the holy texts.
Refusing to comply with the request to disclose their hiding place, Hermes was burnt at the stake in the year 304 at Adrianopolis.
St Hermes - Ora pro nobis
