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. Her veneration spread to Rome so that by the sixth century the ... Continue Reading

    I have been praying for my boyfriends eyes. His eyes have been hurting him and his vision hasn't been the best. I looked up Saints who protect your eyes and I am so glad I am now able to pray to Saint Lucy. Can you please help my boyfriend to regain his vision and protect his eyes each and every single day. Also please protect everyone who is dealing with an eye problem. Please help them to see the beauty that they are missing in the world. I will continue to pray to you.

    St. Lucy, please pray for me. My right eye was damaged due to a surgical error and left me also with severe nerve damage. Please make my life more manageable so that I may enjoy my 2 children and one day see again without pain.

    When my older sister was 6 yrs old she needed to have eye surgery, The day before the operation my mother and father went to St Lucy church in Brooklyn to pray that the operation would be a success. And if it was they would have another child and if it was a girl would name her Lucy. The operation was a success . and i was born about one year later. because i was born a male my parents named Louis. so i owe my life to you St Lucy. i turned fifty on April 1 2011 .

    I had to do research on someone that inspires me for homework. For a long time I've been intrested about St Lucy. When I was little i got a Saints book from my dad, i read them all in a day and St Lucy was my favourite. Now I can read what she has suffered and been through, and am really thanlful for what i have.

    To everyone who reads this. Please pray for the son of my dear friend who was in an accident and lost sight in one of his eyes. This kid is a good person. In spite of a major trauma to his brain and head, and in spite of multiple painful surgeries, he is always happy and kind, and optimistic. This is a young man who was an exceptional athlete and may not be able to get back to sports, but it seems it has not dampened his spirit. Please ask St. Lucy to intercede for him to regain his sight if it be God's will. Thank you.

    St. Lucy, Please pray for me. I am having eye pain and the discomfort frightens me. Pray that I will be not afraid and that there is nothing wrong. I struggle with worry, please pray that I will not worry too much. Be with me and help me as I pray to God for health and comfort. Amen

    I'm doing research on Saint Lucy, and I need some facts. Maybe people could write some facts in bullet points for me? Thanks :)

    St Lucy is my confirmation name and I am having a lot of trouble with my eyes so I have began to research St Lucy as I know she is the patron saint of the blind and eye troubles etc. What is the green thing she holds in the image on this page? In different images I can't tell whether it is a palm leaf or a feather? Does she have a motto of any kind? Answers would be really appreciated, thanks :)
