Prayer to Saint Nicholas, Bishop
Ant: Nicholas, the friend of God, adorned by a priestly mitre,
showed himself loving to all.
V: Pray for us, blessed Nicholas.
R: That we be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
O God, who adorned the blessed Nicholas thy priest with innumerable miracles, grant to us, we beseech, that by his favors and prayers we be freed from the fires of hell. Through our Lord Jesus Christ thy Son, who liveth and reigneth with thee in the unity of the Holy Spirit, O God, world without end. Amen.
ANEMONE: In the early days of the Church, the triple leaf of this plant was used to symbolize the Trinity. Greek legends say that Anemos, the Wind, sends his namesakes the Anemones, in the earliest spring days as the heralds of his coming. Pliny affirmed that they only open when the wind blows, hence the name ~Windflower.
