This is the day we commemorate St. Nicholas, 4th Century Bishop of Myra, one of the authors of the Nicene Creed. He had a love for children and many miracles were attributed to him. It has become tradition in these days for parents to put those gold foil chocolate coins in the shoes of their children on St. Nicholas Day. Here's one look at St. Nicholas.
In honor of the day, a photo of our Nicholas, whether he will be a saint one day is unknown, but may he grow up to emulate the generosity and caring of his namesake.
Every saint began this way, as a babe.
