A scene from the life of St. Nicholas is shown: “The returning of a kidnapped child”.

A man who dearly wanted a child with his wife wanted to ask Saint Nicholas for help. But by the time he got to Myra, the bishop had already died and he only came to his funeral in time. The man decided to take a piece of linen of the dead bishop as a relic. The next year, on December 6th, he and his wife actually had a son. Exactly seven years later to the day, however, the child was abducted and held as a slave. The following year, again on December 6th, the boy was hit by a hurricane and carried to St. Nicholas Church, where his parents prayed for the child to be returned
