Lives of Saints - Translation of St. Nicholas Relics Christianity - Books
If I speak with the languages of men and of angels, but don't have love, I have become sounding brass, or a clanging cymbal.                If I have the gift of prophecy, and know all mysteries and all knowledge; and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but don't have love, I am nothing.                If I dole out all my goods to feed the poor, and if I give my body to be burned, but don't have love, it profits me nothing.                Love is patient and is kind; love doesn't envy. Love doesn't brag, is not proud,                doesn't behave itself inappropriately, doesn't seek its own way, is not provoked, takes no account of evil; 13:6 doesn't rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth;                bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.                Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will be done away with. Where there are various languages, they will cease. Where there is knowledge, it will be done away with.

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.
