Saint Nicholas the Bishop of Myra, to Santa Claus
A caring Christmas message for the Salvation of all man kind
Saint Nicholas of Myra that lived between 15 March 270 – 6 December 342) , also known as Nicholas of Bari, was an early Christian Bishop of the ancient Greek maritime city of Myra in Asia Minor (Ancient Greek: Μύρα, modern-day Demre, Turkey) during the time of the Roman Empire
Saint Nicholas the Bishop of Myra became the second greatest miracle worker of God after Moses during his life time. Saint Nicolas was present in the Church’s first Ecumenical Synod in 325 AC when the Holy fathers were delivering the ~Symbol of Faith~ that included the dogma of the ONE CHURCH in the world for the Salvation of man!

The Churches showing up ~after the schism in 1054 AC~ in violation of the ~Symbol of Faith~ and the dogma as it clearly states in [Ephesians 4:5] “One Lord, One faith, One baptism, disguised Saint Nicolas as a ‘Santa Claus’ depriving from Him this way the knowledge of those who love him of the fact that he was a Bishop of the Church (the original/first Church) as created by the Holy Spirit 2000 years ago and a Church Bishop who took part in the first Church Ecumenical Synod in 325 AC.! This information is very important for us to know for it establishes the fact that Saint Nicolas was participating to all the Holy Sacraments of the Church including the Life Giving ~Holy Communion~ as delivered by the Holy Spirit the day of Pentecost.
[John 6, 54] “Those who eat my flesh and drink my blood have eternal life, and I will raise them to life on that last day”
The Holy Sacraments are very important and very personal — they are the means whereby God’s grace is appropriated to ~each individual Christian separably~ because each and everyone has a personal and unique relationship with God in His Church! In most of the sacraments, the priest mentions the Christian name of each person as he administers the sacrament. [A Kor. 4:1] LET a man so account of us, as of the ministers of Christ, and stewards of the mysteries of God http://orthodoxwiki.org/Holy_Mysteries
It is a historical fact that there was only ONE CHURCH present in the world for the first 1054 years of Christianity. The Churches created after the schism in 1054 AC that claim that Saint Nicolas is a Saint belonging to their own Church purposely or un purposely disregard the fact that Bishop Nicolaos served the Lord as Bishop of Myra hundreds of years before their own church was ever created!
