Saint Heron And Other Black Saints You Probably Never Heard Of

St. Maurice

Maurice was born in an ancient city near Egypt 250 years after Jesus Christ. He worked his way up through the ranks of the Roman Army, eventually becoming a general. As the leader of the Thebes Legion, Maurice and his army of six thousand African men were ordered to fight against a rebellion threatening the empire but after learning his ‘enemies’ were Christians, he and his men refused. In return, the emperor executed Maurice and most of his men. He became the Patron Saint of southern Germany and parts of France, Spain, Italy, and Switzerland.
