St. Nicholas of Tolentine

NicholasoftolentinoNicholas was named for the rather more famous Saint Nicholas of Myra (Saint Nick) when his parents prayed at St. Nicholas' shrine to conceive and bear son after years of infertility.

He developed a reputation for sanctity and miraculous healing through his intercessory prayer, especially for infants and the souls in purgatory.

His feastday is a good reminder to pray for the deceased and the sick. Our prayers can have efficacy through the same power as St. Nicholas of Tolentine, our Loving Savior.
