Product DescriptionThe Bethany Collection is a line of beautifully detailed pewter saint statues depicting the saints in poses with which we are familiar and, in many cases, including a symbol for which the saint is known. St. Nicholas was a Bishop of the church and one of the signers of the Nicene Creed. The statue is made of fine pewter and stands 3-1/2 inches tall with the name of Saint Nicholas engraved on the base. Included with the statue is a laminated prayer card which contains prayers to that specific saint. The statue is presented in a window gift box that allows the statue to be seen while keeping it secure.
St. Nicholas is the patron saint of many countries and also of children, merchants, those who repent of their sins and many other causes. The story of Santa Claus is said to be based on the generosity exhibited by Saint Nicholas when giving to those in need. Some young men choose Saint Nicholas for their Confirmation saint with the intent of emulating the good qualities of this particular saint so the statue would be an appropriate gift to give for that occasion. The size of the statue enables it to be easily displayed on a shelf, desk or night table.
