Lives of Saints - Translation of St. Nicholas Relics Christianity - Books
And if thy hand cause thee to stumble, cut it off: it is good for thee to enter into life maimed, rather than having thy two hands to go into hell, into the unquenchable fire.                where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.                And if thy foot cause thee to stumble, cut it off: it is good for thee to enter into life halt, rather than having thy two feet to be cast into hell.                where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.                And if thine eye cause thee to stumble, cast it out: it is good for thee to enter into the kingdom of God with one eye, rather than having two eyes to be cast into hell;                where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.

Translation of St. Nicholas Relics
   

St. Nicholas the Wonderworker was the bishop of Myra in the 4th century is the most universally venerated saints, although his life is virtually unknown. His see of Myra is in Lycia, south-western Turkey and called Mugla. When Myra and its shrine were taken by the Moslems, the relics were translated to Bari in 1087, where there were many Greek immigrants.

St. Nicholas was reputed to have given three bags of gold to three girls for their marriage dowries in order to save them from prostitution. He is also said to have raised three boys to life after they were murdered in a brine-tub by a butcher, and in his saving three unjustly condemned men from death and three sailors near the coast of Turkey.
