Saint Nicholas Tavelich and companions, Martyrs

Saint of the Day for November 6

(1340 – November 14, 1391)

Feast Day – Nov 14

Nicholas was the son of a noble and wealthy family of Dalmatia. His illustrious parents gave him a good education, and his progress in learning was marvelous, but no less marvelous was his progress in virtue.

When Nicholas finished his studies, a bright future smiled upon him. Everything the world could give was at his command and awaited his pleasure. However, he resolved to quit the world and enter the Order of St Francis. In spite of the great obstacles and the stubborn opposition he met, he received the humble habit of St Francis and made his novitiate with the simplicity and docility of a child.
