Lives of Saints - Translation of St. Nicholas Relics Christianity - Books
I tell you, my friends, don't be afraid of those who kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do.                But I will warn you whom you should fear. Fear him, who after he has killed, has power to cast into Gehenna. Yes, I tell you, fear him.                Aren't five sparrows sold for two assaria coins? Not one of them is forgotten by God.                But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Therefore don't be afraid. You are of more value than many sparrows.                I tell you, everyone who confesses me before men, him will the Son of Man also confess before the angels of God;                but he who denies me in the presence of men will be denied in the presence of the angels of God.

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.
