  • Hymns in Latin and Middle English. I have been listening to this ever since the CD was released. It adds, for me, an additional solemnity to the feast, magnified already by the Polish tradition of Sw. Mikolaj I grew up with.




    Da pacem Domine in diebus nostris
    Qui non est alius
    Qui pugnet pro nobis
    Nisi  tu Deus noster

  • Hi Kazimierz,

    Thank you so much for the link to the wonderful music. I too remember fondly the great devotion my family had towards this great Saint. In Slovakia, he is our patron (especially for Greek Catholics) as he is for Poland as well. 

    Here is a prayer I say quite often and especially today on our Saint’s feast day. 

    Quote
    Prayer to Holy Father St. Nicholas

    O who e’ver doth St. Nicholas love,
    O who e’ver doth St. Nicholas serve,
    To him doth St. Nicholas,
    Render assistance in distress:

    Nicholas -Nicholas. 

    Nicholas, do thou entreat for us, 
    We all do petition thee with tears, 
    We shall continue to praise thee. 
    Keep thy name ever in glory: 
    Forever -forever. 

    Molitva Ko Svjatomu Otcu Sv. Nikolaju

    O kto, kto Nikolaja l’ubit,
    O kto, kto Nikolaja slúžiť,
    Tomu Svjatyj Nikolaj,
    Na vsjakij čas pomahaj:
    Nikolaj, Nikolaj!

    Nikolaj! Ty molisja za ny,
    Prosim t’a Otče so slezami,
    My t’a budem voschval’ati,
    Imja tvoje veličati:
    Vo v’iki, vo v’iki!

    (Church Slavonic, Latin script)

    Thank you for the prayer to St Nicholas. I cannot read Cyrillic, but transliterated text from Old Church Slavonic I have picked up more and more. Listening and reading material from Valaam monastery was my first major exposure. The Agni Parthene is a prime example. 

    Gospode pomliuj nas. Panie zmiluj sie nad nas. Kyrie eleison :pray::pray::pray::incense::incense::incense:
    Da pacem Domine in diebus nostris
    Qui non est alius
    Qui pugnet pro nobis
    Nisi  tu Deus noster
