Wishing all my brethren here a blessed feast day commemorating St. Nicholas.

May his example remind us of the great charity he showed to others, especially the poor, at this time of year when Our Lord chose to be generous to us by becoming one of us in all things but sin in order to reconcile us all to the Father.

For your enjoyment, the "Hymn to Saint Nicholas" sung by Saint George the Great-Martyr Parish in Taylor, Pennsylvania:

O kto, kto Nikolaja l'ubit, O kto, kto Nikolaju služit, :Tomu svjatyj Nikolaj Na vsjakij čas pomahaj, Nikolaj, Nikolaj:

O who loves Nicholas, the saintly, O who serves Nicholas,the saintly, Him will Nicholas receive, And give help in time of need, Nicholas, Nicholas.

O kto, kto živet v jeho dvory Pomoščnik na zeml'i i mor'i. :Izmet jeho ot napasti Ne dast' jemu v hr'ichi v pasti Nikolaj, Nikolaj.:

O who dwells in God's holy mansions, Is our help on the land and oceans. He will guard us from all ills, Keep us pure and free from sins, Nicholas, Nicholas.

Each subject is covered in 5-10 lectures and are suitable for personal viewing or when connected to a video projector or large screen TV could be used for parish educational programs.
