Saint Nicholas Day

Nicholas of Myra:
Psalm 78:3-7 or 145:8-13
1 John 4:7-14; Mark 10:13-16

O Lord, let your continual mercy enkindle in your church the unfailing gift of charity, that, following the example of your servant Nicholas of Myra, we may have grace to deal in generosity and love with children and with all who are poor and distressed, and to uphold the cause of those who have no helper; for the sake of Him who gave His life for us, Your Son our Savior Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen

Today is a good day to learn all about the true St. Nicholas.

Parents struggling with how to handle the “Santa” issue should consider telling children the true story of this saint, and centering the giving of gifts around the generousity of this Christ-honoring church father.
