Saint Nicholas

06 Dec

St. Nicholas Icon

 

Today is the feast day of St. Nicholas, Bishop of Myra.  Known for his generosity to the poor and others in need, the celebration of his life in early Advent brings us closer to the celebration of the birth of Christ.  Many of his good deeds were done in secret, expecting nothing in return.

Have a little fun today by exploring the life of our modern day “Santa Claus!” Find out who jolly old St. Nick really is and why as Christians, we use exemplars to foster daily faith.  A beautiful website is www.stnicholascenter.org where you can download prayers, pictures for children to color and as parents and grandparents–prepare children for the true meaning of Christmas.

Have a productive and blessed day!
