(Saint) Bishop (December 6) (4th century) An Archbishop of Myra in Asia Minor who from the innocence of his own life and the devotedness with which he, as a Bishop, watched over the young, has come to be regarded as the Patron Saint of children. He died in the middle of the fourth century, and some hundred years later his holy relics were translated to Bari in Italy. The familiar “Santa Klaus” is a corrupt form of his name.
