View from the choir

I am a Catholic layperson and Secular Franciscan with a sense of humor. After years in the back pew watching, I have moved into the choir. It's nice to see faces instead of the backs of heads. But I still maintain God has a sense of humor - and that we are created in God's image.

St. Nicholas's face

Thanks to forensic science - with the ability to reconstruct a face just from the skull - here's what St. Nicholas (Santa Claus) may have looked like in life (before God granted him the special grace to be Santa, of course!)

I found it interesting, too. Some early icons of St. Nicholas resemble that image.
