A story from mount Athos

(....) He has told him that if he saw a sea storm and the ship was in jeopardy, he should take the candle of Saint Nicolas and spill it out in the sea to calm it. One year, at Holy Week, father Chrisostomos went to the sea to see if he had caught fish. It was very stormy, and a little ship struggled with the waves. So he took Saint's Nicolas candle went to the moor and spilled the oil in the sea. In a while the air stopped blowing and the sea calmed. The ship went to Vatopedi, unloaded and returned to Stauronikita's moor unloading many blessings and gratitude to Saint Nicolas that saved them.
