St. Nicholas

Lewis Williams, OFS

Artist's Narrative:
This icon is offered in memory of the victims of Hurricane Katrina, August, 2005. He is the patron of many, including children and the poor, who comprised the bulk of the victims in this catastrophe. May his intercession help return the beauty of wonder into their lives.

Traditional Prayer:
God, Who did grace the Blessed Nicholas as protector of imperiled innocence while he lived, and after his death by countless miracles, grant that by his merits we may be freed from perversion of justice while alive, and from the fires of Gehenna after death.

His feast day is December 6.
