Nicholas was Bishop of Myra in Lycia (now in Turkey), where he died about the middle of the fourth century. He is honored throughout the Church, especially from the tenth century.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, we implore Your love and mercy to protect us from all danger. Through the prayer of Saint Nicholas lead us to salvation by paths that are swift and sure. We pray this in the most precious name of our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, God, for ever and ever. Amen.
