Day of the Holy Nicholas, Bishop

December 6

Color: White


Almighty God, loving and bountiful parent and shepherd of our souls, we Thy servants do give Thee most humble thanks for the glorious example of Thy holy bishop Saint Nicholas of Myra; grant, we beseech Thee, that inspired by such love as he is said to have possessed, we also shall be ministers of Thy bounty, bestowers of the gifts of the spirit, and make the hearts of Thy children rejoice for evermore. Amen.

The Lesson and Gospel are those ordained for the Eighteenth Sunday after Trinity.
