    I love St. Lucy, she is my name sake and was my Grandma's name too! We are Italian so we always celebrate the day with my children with all of the customs. My son just did a report on her and I learned so much more about her, what a special person of God she was.

    Oh!I really find the of St.Lucy so interesting to read. In fact, it is my family saint's name and I'm proud to be a part of st.Lucy family "the shining Light". I will never forget her life story. I wanted to imitate her courageous acts.
