Feast of Saint Nicholas

St. Nicholas Day celebrates the life of Saint Nicholas of Myra, a fourth-century Christian bishop considered the real-life model for Santa Claus. The giver of every good and perfect gift has called upon us to mimic Gods giving, by grace, through faith, and this is not of ourselves.  Jesuit Resource

imageNever be in a hurry; do everything quietly and in a calm spirit. Do not lose your inner peace for anything whatsoever, even if your whole world seems upset.  — St. Francis de Sales

It is good to give thanks to the Lord, to sing praises to your name, O Most High; to declare your imagesteadfast love in the morning, and your faithfulness by night, to the music of the lute and the harp, to the melody of the lyre. For you, O Lord, have made me glad by your work; at the works of your hands I sing for joy.   –  Psalm 92:1-4
