Where is God’s word to be kept?
Obviously, in the heart, as the prophet says,
“I have hidden your words in my heart,
so that I may not sin against you.”
Keep God’s word in this way.
Let it enter your very being,
let it take possession of your desires
and your whole way of life.
Feed on goodness
and your soul will delight in richness.
Remember to eat your bread
or your heart will wither away.
Fill your soul with richness and strength.
If you keep the word of God in this way,
it will also keep you.

Simple ways to celebrate the Feast of St. Nicholas December 6
-Read or share the story of St. Nicholas of Myra, patron saint of children.
-On December 5th children put a shoe outside their door. They can use their own shoes or slippers or wooden shoes just for the occasion. (When there is more time for preparation, it is a wonderful addition to have the children fill their shoes with coins for the poor, which they earn thru small tasks and sacrifices).
The good Saint stops by in the night, (collecting the coins to give to the poor) and filling their shoe with the traditional gifts for the feast of St. Nicholas; a small orange for health (the greatest wealth), a candy cane representing Jesus’ love for us (the greatest gift), gold foil coins for their generosity (that God may supply their needs) a walnut in its shell (God’s protection) and chocolate for joy (the greatest sign of God’s presence). A small toy or token of affection can also be included.
-Older children may enjoy assuming the traditional role of St Nicholas by filling each other’s shoes - a twist on “secret Santa” where family members can make small gifts to express their love and appreciation for one another.
-It is also fun to make or purchase St. Nicholas cookies to decorate and share, or add a bishop’s mitre to a chocolate Santa for the occasion.
-if you shop for gifts for someone in need this Christmas, do it on the feast day and share about how St. Nicholas helped the poor anonymously, with humility and generosity. Finish your outing with a St. Nicholas cookie or the traditional treats and share their meaning while you wrap the gifts.
