Happy St. Nicholas Day!

My favorite miracle of St. Nicholas (which God performed through him) from my Mom's book of saints:

"On one visitation he stayed in the house of a man into whom
Satan seemed to have entered; for when meat failed for his table he supplied it with the flesh of little children whom he stole and murdered in order to serve as meat to the travelers who were his guests. It was this
horrible repast, disguised with his best skill, that this wicked man
dared to set before the Bishop and his companions. No sooner had the man of God set his eyes upon the sumptuous table and upon the 'meat' prepared for him, that he understood the horrible fraud. He charged the host with this abominable crime, and the man, trembling confessed his sin. Then, St. Nicholas led the way to the place were the remains where the remains of the other victims had been hidden, To the horror of all, they found them salted down in a tub. Clothed with the majesty of a Bishop of God, and endowed with the power which the Almighty One gives to His Saints, no sooner had St. Nicholas made over them the sign of the cross, than the three little children were restored to life, and then given back to their Mother."

I hope everyone has/had a blessed day!

St. Nicholas, Patron Saint of children, pray for us!
