St. Nicholas, Bishop, Confessor - Dec. 6th

"White - Double - {now 3rd class-BP}

St. Nicholas, Archbishop of Myra is Asia Minor, [that's "Turkey" to you folks in Rio Linda-KH], from the childlike innocence of his own life and his devout care for the young looked upon as the patron of children. He died in the middle of the fourth century, and seven hundred years later his holy relics were translated to Bari in Italy. Because of the power he exercised over flames, we pray that through his intercession we may be preserved from the flames of hell. - SM"
