St. Nicholas of Myra




He didn't write any great works of theology, but one could perhaps say that his life was theology in action.

He is reputed to have given the heretic Arius a "shiny red nose" at the Council of Nicea. A man of few words, but whose zeal for the house of the Lord knew no compromise when it came to the proper knowledge of the Way, the Truth and the Life.

Ora pro nobis!

Ah yes -our father among the saints, dear Saint Nicholas, and the patron of my church. I pray that we may all be so aflame with the Divine caritas that we can shine forth Christ in the world.

In Thy Light we see Light.

Pax in Christus Salus

Pax tecum, frater!

Any friend of St. Nicholas is a friend of mine.
