St. Lucy Prayer
Prayer in honor of St. Lucy front of box
O God, our Creator and
Redeemer, mercifully hear our
prayers that as we venerate Thy
servant, St. Lucy, for the light of
faith Thou didst bestow upon
her, Thou wouldst vouchsafe to
increase and to preserve this
same light in our souls, that we
may be able to avoid evil, to do
good and to abhor nothing so
much as the blindness and the
darkness of evil and sin.
Relying on Thy goodness. O
God, we humbly ask Thee, by
the intercession of Thy servant.
St. Lucy, that Thou wouldst give
perfect vision to our eyes, that
they may serve for Thy greater
honor and glory, and for the
salvation of our souls in this
world, that we may come to the
enjoyment of the unfailing
light of the Lamb of God in
paradise. St. Lucy, virgin and
martyr, hear our prayers and
obtain our petitions.

Story of St. Lucy
Patroness of the Blind (Born 283 - Died 304)
When Lucy of Syracuse was a young girl she became a Christian, which was not acceptable to many during those times including her father and mother. Her father, patriarch of a rich Roman family, died when Lucy was young. After her father's death, a marriage was arranged for her by her mother who suffered from a hemorrhagic illness for a long period of time. Because Lucy wanted her mother to accept her beliefs in Christianity, she prayed at the tomb of St. Agatha. Her mother's illness was cured and her mother accepted Lucy's faith and wishes to live for God. Because of this, Lucy has become known as a patron of similar illnesses.
The groom of the marriage, that was arranged for Lucy, denounced her because of her Christian faith. Because she was denounced, the government attempted to force Lucy into prostitution. However, the officials of the government were not able to move her by force, and so it was ordered that she be killed by torture. Her eyes were put out and they attempted to set fire to her, but the fires burned out. Lucy regained her eyesight shortly before she was executed. As a result she became the Patroness of the blind. The meaning of her name is bringer of light.
Feast Day: December 13th.
