Feast Day of St. Nicholas Facto
A Franciscan preacher and a native of Valencia, Spain, Nicholas entered the Franciscans in 1537 and subsequently labored as a preacher. It was his custom to scourge himself before delivering each sermon. In the process of his beatification in 1786, St. Paschal Baylon and Blessed Louis Bertrand were summoned to act as witnesses.
St. Nicholas Factor, pray for us.
