St. Nicholas was an Augustinian friar who combined ascetical practices and  constant prayer with a very active apostolate.  Many favors have been ascribed to his intercession.  He was named the patron of several cities in Italy.  St. Nicholas is usually depicted with a star or sunburst on his chest.  This symbol is derived from a star that he saw marking out Tolentino as the place where he would live and die.  Other symbols are a lily and a book.
