Word to the Wyes 12-3-20
St. Nicholas – Bishop of Myra, c. 342 December 6
Almighty God, in your love you gave your servant Nicholas of Myra as a perpetual name for deeds and kindness both on land and sea: Grant, we pray, that your Church may never cease to work for happiness of children, the safety of sailors, the relief of the poor, and the help of those tossed by tempests of doubt or grief; though Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen
