The Transfiguration of Our Lord
His face shone like the sun, and His garments became white as snow. A bright cloud overshadowed them and a voice from the cloud said, "This is my Beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased; listen to Him". When the disciples heard this, they fell on their faces with awe. But Jesus came and touched them saying, "rise, and have no fear". (Matthew 17)

St Nicholas of Myra - December 6th

St Nicholas was the archbishop of Myra in Asia Minor in the 4th century. He may have participated in the Council of Nicea in 325, although his name never appeared on any documents of the time. He is also the basis for the Santa Claus legends and imagery which accompany Christmas celebrations in much of the world. While widely honored and venerated not only in the Orthodox Church, but in most Christian groups, little is known of his life.
He was born to well-to-do parents, and having inherited his parents' estate, he became known for his generous gifts to those in need. He made pilgrimages to Palestine and Egypt, and was subsequently consecrated Archbishop of Myra. Nicholas was noted for his defense of Orthodoxy against false doctrines. He was imprisoned during these persecutions but later was released by Emperor Constantine. St Nicholas died in Myra on December 6, between 342 and 352, the exact year is unknown.
