The Feast of St. Nicholas of Myra

December 6th is the feast of St. Nicholas of Myra, Bishop and Confessor his generosity was legendary and as result his story morphed into Santa Claus.

He led the Church in Myra through the Diocletian persecution (304-314) the worst persecution of the Roman Empire. He was imprisoned for the faith. While I am sure he was as generous as legend says, he must have had a lot more substance than a jolly old elf.
