WHY SANTA CLAV8
About tlM year 300 after Christ,
there lived a young man namnri
Nicholas in Patara, Lycia where
St. Paul first planted the faith
of Jesus- Having lost his parents
when he was a young man, he
gave all his goods to the poor. Par
example, one of his fellow-citizens
had three daughters, but being too
poor to offer a dowry for their mar
riage as was the custom then, he
decided to abandon the girls to a
life of prositution- Nicholas, leani
ng of this, went to the house dur
ng the night and threw in the win
low sufficient money for the dowry
>f one girl- He repeated this on 2
>ther occasions, thus enabling all
hree to be married to respectable
Later Nicholas devoted his whole
ife to God, Who worked many won
lers among men thru him- When
le died in 342, his people consider
ed him one of God's saints, and in
heir language called him "Sanctus
ttcolaus", which has been shorten
ed in English to Santa Claus. His
:indness to the three girls is still
rommemorated nowadays by chil
tren who on Dec. 6th, (his feast
lay), hang their stockings at the
ireplace, and hope that Nicholas
vill visit their house during the
light and fill them with gifts and
tuts and fruits
Nicholas is a special patron of
children because he himself was a
nodel of innocence and virtue from
lis childhood; and as a preacher,
lis first care and delight was to
orm that tender age to sincere
>iety. Parents today must try to
io the same by instructions made
sensible and adapted to their small
ninds by similes, parables and ex
amples; but especially by good
example. A child seeing those a
bout him love their own ease and
ever seek what pleases their sens
es, seeing them peevish, vain im
patient and lazy, will naturally
cherish and give in to those pas
sions instead of governing them by
by humility, meekness and self

it comes to the human race?
Let's now once first digest what

Moat people have a different def

Often an athlete thinks he is a
