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.

    I read about St. Lucy in second grade when I did a report on her then in 6th grade I remembered reading about her bravery so I chose her for my Confirmation saint. One day I hope to name my children after her (I hope that doesn't sound like, weird...).

    I too choose Lucy as my confirmation name- over 25 years ago! A long time ago, however i feel as though St Lucy has truly protected me in my life. I am always reminded of St Lucy as i have a beautiful niece named Lucy. St Lucy will protect and guide you in your lives, an excellent choice of confirmation name, good luck in all you do.

    Lucy is going to be my confirmation name and i need to know a lot about her!
    this helped out and I'm blessed to find a site all about the catholic religion!
    I agree, I could have used more information but I do think that we can learn on our owns as long as we let God into our lives

    peace and love
    jesus christ is our savior
    AMEN
