"Nobody knows where the red suit and white beard came
from, but Nicholas had a profound understanding of the method
Jesus used throughout his ministry. When you read the four
Gospels, you discover that Jesus almost never preached before
he attended to some human need. He would heal someone—
make the lame walk or the blind see. He would feed the hungry,
often thousands of people at a time."
