Who was Saint Nicholas?

The story of Santa Claus begins with Nicholas, born during the third century in the village of Patara. His wealthy parents, who raised him to be a devout Christian, died in an epidemic while Nicholas was still young. Obeying Jesus’ words to “sell what you own and give the money to the poor”, Nicholas used his whole inheritance to assist the needy, the sick, and the suffering/ He dedicated his life to serving God and was made Bishop pf Myra while still a young man. Bishop Nicholas became known throughout the land for his generosity to those in need, his love for children and his concern for sailors and ships. The Roman Emperor ruthlessly persecuted Christians so he suffered for his faith, exiled and imprisoned. St. Nicholas is Patron of Seamen, the Protector of Children & Ferrymen.
