Saint of the Month: December 2014

St Nicholas of Myra

St Nicholas of Myra (270-343)

Feast day: 6 December

St Nicholas must be one of the busiest saints in Heaven and also one of the most popular. He is patron saint of Russia, Greece and of course Galway, the Catholic Cathedral and Anglican Collegiate Church being dedicated to him. We see in this a wonderful connection between the churches of the east and the west in that they both venerate Nicholas. He is patron saint of sailors, condemned prisoners and especially of children to name but a few of his numerous responsibilities.
