Miracle of the Carpet

Dionisy's frescoes. Miracle of the Carpet

Posthumous miracle of St. Nicholas. In Myra one impoverished man took out his last possession, the carpet, to the market to sell in order to celebrate the memory of Saint Nicholas the Miracle-worker. The saint whom the man did not recognize bought the carpet and returned it to his wife without revealing his identity.
