St. Nicholas--The True Santa Claus

It seems every year the Holiday Season (we're no longer allowed to say Christmas) starts earlier and earlier in order to capture the massive Christmas sales.  It used to be after Thanksgiving and now you see stores and online marketing right after Halloween!

Everywhere you see Santa Claus, you know him... that chubby, jolly, white-bearded man, wearing the red coat with a white collar, with a big black belt and boots, riding his sleigh filled with toys for good girls and boys. 

The true story of Santa Claus begins with Nicholas, who was born in a town in what is now Turkey during the middle of the third century.  His wealthy parents died while he was still young but they had brought him up as a devout Christian.  After their death, Nicholas dedicated his life to serving God and used his inheritance to help the needy, the sick and the suffering. 

He became Bishop of Myra while still a young man and as Bishop Nicholas he became known  for his generosity to those in need and especially his love for children and his concern for sailors and ships. Under the persecution of Diocletian, St. Nicholas not only suffered torture, but also suffered imprisonment.  When Constantine came into power, the church gained peace and St. Nicholas was released from prison.  He was then raised to the office of Archbishop of Myra.   At the Council of Nicaea, St. Nicholas defended the true nature of Christ against the Arian heresy and helped write the Nicene Creed.

St. Nicholas died December 6, AD 343 in Myra and was buried in his cathedral church in Myra and in the eleventh century the relics of St. Nicholas were transferred to Bari, Italy.  His body exudes even to this day an ointment called myron, which was used to anoint the sick which led to many miracles. This exuding of oil is called "manna of St. Nicholas".

St. Nicholas is venerated as the patron saint of children and travelers.   Many miracles have been associated with him, earning him the name "St. Nicholas, the wonderworker".  His feast day is December 6th and it is still the main day for gift giving and merrymaking in much of Europe. 

Everybody loves Santa Claus, jolly St. Nick.  After all, he embodies holiday cheer, happiness, fun and gifts--the warm happy aspects of Christmas.  This year remember the true Santa Claus, St. Nicholas--who spread the true Christmas message, the story of Christ and peace and goodwill--not only on Christmas but all year long, as he cared for those in need, especially children.

Pray the Rosary, wear the brown scapular and pray to the Mother of God to bring Christ back into Christmas, as practiced by St. Nicholas, preserving Christmas Day focus as it rightfully should be--on the Christ Child, who selflessly gave the greatest gift of all--himself.

Woe To You Sleaze-Ball Politicians Who Command Others!

Take heed you Israeli clone commanders. If so many people are dammed to Hell by your fault…WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO YOU?

Would you wager that Stalin, Hitler, Kim Jong-il, Ho Chi Minh, Saddam Hussein, and their likes are NOT BURNING IN HELL? Will you corrupt politicians fare-out any better? If I were a betting man I would bet that barely one of you Washington politicians would fare out any better than these above named tyrants.

It takes compassion for humanity, love for country, and a strong pursuit of justice and mercy to become a strong and respected leader of the people. Do we see these honorable traits in our commanders? Let’s take a look!

Does Barack “If you want to keep your insurance policy—you can keep it” (shortened quote) Obama possess these honorable traits?

Does Joe “Credit Card” Biden?

Does Multi-million-air Nancy “We have to pass the Bill (Health Care) so that you can find out what is in it” Pelosi?  

Does Multi-million-air Harry “Today is a big day in America, ONLY 36,000 people lost their jobs today” Reid?

Does John “It’s hard for me to imagine that anyone in the Intelligence areas would mislead us” Boehner?

Does Mitch “$3 billion debt-ceiling sellout” McConnell?

Do our many flamboyant “stuck on the Jews” political commanders have these honorable traits?  Or do we see our political Commanders in bed with the imitation Jew Zionists selling out America and squeezing money out of the lobbyists, the treasury and taxpayers to fatten-up their wallets?

The most important issues of interest to Americans should be: To what extent will the influence of the Zionist Jews continue to have over our anti-American politicians; over their anti-Christian (or non-Christian agenda). And will our political commanders continue to “put the screws” to their constituents and debase the U.S. Constitution, or, will these privileged commanders come to their senses and show true devotion to the American people and denounce their devotion to Israel and the Zionist Jews—the haters and murderers of Our Lord Jesus Christ?

If they choose not to convert, let them heed the warning signs given by the Saints and Holy Scriptures that tell where the many go that fail to convert and where these political commanders and Zionist Jews are on track to go.  

Saint Anselm declares: “There are few who are saved.”  Saint Augustine states even more clearly: “…few are saved in comparison to those who are damned.” The most terrifying, however, is Saint Jerome. He spoke these dreadful words: “Out of one hundred thousand people whose lives have ALWAYS BEEN BAD, you will find barely ONE who is worthy of indulgence.”

And what does Scripture say? “Enter ye in at the narrow gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and MANY there are who go in thereat.” (Matthew 7:13)

And, “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in the clothing of sheep (those Zionist Jews that YOU commanders follow), but inwardly they are raving wolves.” (Matthew 7:15)

What’s most dishearteningly is…BIDEN, PELOSI and BOEHNER—those so-called “Catholics”--who should know better. If they were to place more emphasis on their Catholic Faith and their salvation rather than capitulating to the Zionist’s Israeli agenda and having concern for mammon, we would not be experiencing the multitude of rubbish currently coming out of Washington.

It would be well advised for these political commanders and their Jewish cohorts to heed (Wisdom 5:6-14):

We have erred from the way of truth, we wearied ourselves in the way of iniquity and destruction and have walked through hard ways. What hath pride profited us?...Or what advantage hath the boasting brought us?...Such as these the sinners said in HELL.”

Pray the Rosary, wear the Brown Scapular, and pray for the conversion of ALL our political commanders and ALL Jews.
