I am praying for you all, and as someone who has been in your position I want to assure you all again that it really is possible. God will take your efforts and multiply them, and when the time is right you will be debt free, however impossible that might seem at the moment. God bless you all.

One of the legends associated with St. Nicholas is that he provided dowries for young maidens! I am sure he will help if he can!

Here's a link with a lot of them - such a lovely saint!

[url="http://www.basilicasannicola.it/home/capitoli.php?area_id=25&lingua_id=2&capitolo_id=117"]http://www.basilicas...capitolo_id=117[/url]

All the legends are fun o read, but the relevant one is 'Legend #2':

[b][font=Verdana][size=2]Dowry for the Young Maidens[/size][/font][/b]

[font=Verdana][size=2]Charity and chastity formed the foundations of the life of St. Nicholas. These virtues are clearly depicted in the most well-known episode concerning the dowry the Saint bestowed upon three poor maidens who would otherwise have been doomed to prostitution. This life-episode has inspired many artists striving to identify a symbol to characterize Saint Nicholas and differentiate him from other bishops sanctified in ancient times....[/size][/font]

[font=Verdana][size=2]...any devout follower is able to distinguish St. Nicholas among all other Bishops by way of an inconfutible symbol: three gold balls. A Bishop portrayed with three gold balls, whether held in his hand or lain at his feet, is without doubt, St. Nicholas. By way of an artistic deformation, the three gold balls represent the three bags of gold coins around which the story of the plight of the three, young, maidens is centred. [/size][/font]

[font=Verdana][size=2]The story unfolds in the city of Patara or, more likely, in Myra, about one hundred kilometres from Patara where Nicholas had moved to with his family. According to some accounts, Nicholas’s parents were no longer alive at the time of this episode, and Nicholas, in the meantime, had grown into a young man full of hope and economic means. According to other accounts, his parents were alive and Nicholas was still economically dependent. Regardless of the truth, Nicholas learned of a family in dire need.[/size][/font]

[font=Verdana][size=2]The townspeople told of a man who had fallen into the despair of poverty and had resolved to deliver his three maiden daughters to prostitution to gain money for their dowry. [/size][/font]

[font=Verdana][size=2]When Nicholas heard of this desperate father’s intent, he decided to intervene according to the evangelic teaching: [i]shall your left hand not know what your right hand is doing.[/i] In other words, he determined to accomplish a good deed without receiving acknowledgement. God was to be the sole witness of Nicholas’s good deed for, if witnessed and praised by fellow men, the good deed would lose its value. [/size][/font]

[font=Verdana][size=2]Therefore, Nicholas resolved to act in the still of the night. He gathered together some gold coins and tied them inside a piece of cloth. Then, he headed for the home of the three unhappy maidens. [/size][/font]

[font=Verdana][size=2]As Nicholas approached the maidens’ window, he stretched his hand through the iron bars and tossed the small pouch of coins in-side. It landed on the floor and the thump attracted the father’s attention. When he rushed into the maidens’ room, he discovered the bag full of money. At first, he was dumbfounded, but then his heart burst with joy as he could finally provide a dowry to marry off his eldest daughter.[/size][/font]

[font=Verdana][size=2]One can imagine the father’s elation in receiving the money. Nevertheless, he was curious to unveil the anonymous benefactor, so, he darted out of the house in search of him. [/size][/font]

[font=Verdana][size=2]Unfortunately, his attempt to unmask the mysterious gift-giver failed for Nicholas had fled off into the night.[/size][/font]

[font=Verdana][size=2]Nicholas was pleased in seeing that the father had made proper use of the money received and, thus, decided to repeat the good deed. Indeed, some time later, in the midst of the night, Nicholas tossed another bag full of gold coins through the window. Once again, the father was able to procure a dowry to happily marry off his second daughter.[/size][/font]

[font=Verdana][size=2]Suspecting and predicting that the mysterious benefactor would act a third time to save the youngest daughter from misery, and eager to unveil the identity of the man who had saved his reputation and redeemed his honour, the father kept watch night after night. Finally, one night, while desperately trying to keep awake, the father heard the all too familiar thump of a third pouch of jingling coins drop onto the floor. The man pounced to the window and, before Nicholas could disappear out of sight, the man began to chase after him. When the father caught up with the mysterious disburser of money, he recognized his redeemer and saviour; it was Nicholas! Nicholas, however, fearful that his identity had been unmasked, swore the man to eternal secrecy, but judging by the course of events, it is very likely that the father broke his oath. Therefrom, word that Nicholas was a great charitable man spread even more throughout the streets of Myra. [/size][/font]


[font=Verdana][size=2]I am praying for all of you.....[/size][/font]
