"St. Nicolaus"

Peace on Earth, Goodwill towards Men!

Many are filled with anxiety, the time is drawing near. While on the 25th day of December, we will see who gives and receives good tidings and cheer. And on the other hand, which shall be to all people. From whom, it really doesn’t matter, because good old St. Nicolaus, the most popular Saint of ALL, is pleased to lend a listening ear.

For on this day, children whose love ones believe, will be rewarded for their good deeds.

There are many, who over the past eleven months have worked towards this day; no joy not even a toy will come their way. Instead this mysterious game, pain, death and destruction are what they will play, to fill this void made on Christmas day. Peace and Goodwill towards all men.

St. Nicholas, who is the patron saint of children, sailors, fishermen, merchants, the falsely accused, pawnbrokers, prostitutes, repentant thieves, several countries, and many cities. There are many stories of his generosity and compassion: how he begged for food for the poor, and how he would give girls money for a dowry to get a husband. The story most often repeated is how he doned a disguise and went out giving gifts to poor children. He gave away everything he had, and he died around 345. His body was later moved to Bari, Italy, where his remains are to this day.

The story of Nicholas has spread around the world. There are more churches in the world named after St. Nicholas than any other person in the history of the church.

People have done strange things to him. Poet Clement Moore gave him a red nose and eight tiny reindeer. Thomas Nast, the illustrator, made him big and fat and gave him a red suit trimmed in fur. Others have given him names, like Santa Claus. But most important about St. Nicholas is he had a heart of "selfless love" that touched the whole world around us.

We are soldiers fighting for our cause and to all good soldiers, I bid you well, double duty I can tell. It is during these times, the most popular Saint of all, is most attentive to our beckoning call. Know you are loved without fear and like you; we can not wait for peace and good tidings to bring you near.

Why wait for St. Nicolaus, why not the whole year through? There is room for improvement.
