At an early age Nicholas was greatly moved by the preaching of the Augustinian, Father Reginaldo da Monterubbiano, prior of the monastery of Sant'Angelo, and requested admission to the community.
His life was a perfect model of visionary holiness, compassion and savvy.
Nicholas died in Tolentino on September 10th, 1305. He was declared a saint in 1446, the first member of the Augustinian Order to be canonized. Saint Nicholas' body is exposed in the basilica in Tolentino which bears his name. His memory is celebrated with joy by the Augustinian family on this day each September.
