Saint Nicholas has miraculously answered Christians' prayers for centuries. Born toward the end of the third century, Saint Nicholas was elected the Archbishop of Myra upon the death of his uncle, the archbishop.
Christ and the Virgin Mary are portrayed on each side of St Nicholas affirming his authority as an orthodox (true believing) bishop as he opposed the Arian heresy at the Council of Nicaea.
St Nicholas. the Wonderworker, is known as the protector of children, patron of travel
ers, sailors, unmarried girls, merchants as well as pawn brokers and jewelers.
