Ona Graham sent me this wonderful prayer in honor of our patronal feast day, which is today and which we will celebrate this coming Sunday. Have a happy St. Nicholas Day!

Prayer to Saint Nicholas From an unknown French parish

O good Saint Nicholas,
who brings joy to children,
put in my heart the spirit of childhood,
of which the Gospel speaks
and teach me to sow happiness around me.
You, whose feast prepares us for Christmas,
open my faith to the mystery of God made man.

You, bishop and pastor,
help me to find my place in the Church.

O good Saint Nicholas,
patron of this parish,
watch over all who come to this church
to pray to Jesus,
your Lord and theirs, and also,
on those whom I humbly entrust to you today.
Amen.
