St. Lucy Comments

Lucy's name means "light", with the same root as "lucid" which means "clear, radiant, understandable." Unfortunately for us, Lucy's history does not match her name. Shrouded in the darkness of time, all we really know for certain is that this brave woman who lived in Syracuse lost her life in the persecution of Christians in the early fourth century.

    St. Lucy, please pray for the homeless and those who lost their jobs due to cuts and bunckrupcy. Provide for the homeless shelters and clothing for the children. St. Lucy. We pray that God will empower the poor and the forgotten in the nursing homes and hospitals to get well, to get visits from family members and to be ready to see Jesus through your prayers.
    St. Lucy pray for us sinners in the hour of our death. Amen

    Today is my little brother's homecoming from 6 months in Afghanistan. I have travelled for 6 hours with my mother and 4 year old daughter to see him. Last night at diner, I noticed that my daughter had conjuntivitis. We took her to a local emergency room and she was given some drops. When I went to give her the drops this morning, she had it in both eyes. Please pray that this goes away before my brother comes home or that no one else contracts it. Thank you so much and Semper Fidelis!

    Dear St. Lucy, I found you to be such an inspirational Saint that I took your name in Confirmation as my Saint. I haven't prayed to you for a long time, but now I am coming
    to you on Dec. 13, your Feast Day for your prayers and intercession for my Bob's eyes. He has had problems with his eyes for some time now and we are so in need of your
    love and prayers. Please intercede for my eyes too, St. Lucy, as they have been giving me
    some trouble lately. I ask for this through Jesus Christ Our Lord. Thank you dear St. Lucy.

    Dear St. Lucy, Thank you for being the patron saint of the blind and eye impairment. In my daily morning prayers, I implore that the Lord protect me and my family, friends and loved ones of any accident especially from driving during this season when rain, snow and darkness make visibility difficult to see the road and pedestrians. I admire your simplicity and courage to defend your faith. How i wished I have the same faith as yours. St. Lucy, please pray for me and my intentions. Amen

    Please pray with me:

    Dear Sicilian Virgin and Martyr

    You valiantly rejected great promises and resisted several threats in remaining faithful to your beloved Lord.
    For centuries Christians have invoked you particularly when suffering from eye trouble.
    So now we implore your assistance on behalf of Annie K and Johnny K. We also ask you to teach us to imitate you and to avoid spiritual blindness of any kind. Amen.
