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.

    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.

    My mother is having cataract surgery on December 13th of this year, I did not even know that ths was the Feast Day of St. Lucy, God is good. My mother lost sight in her right eye 5 years ago, she has what is called Giant Cell Artiritis and we have been praying for a miracle for God to restore her sight in that eye. My mother has now developed a cataract in her good eye and is scheduled for this surgury on Decemeber 13, 2012. Her cataract surgery was originally scheduled to occur this past August; however, she suffered a heart attack and had to undergo open heart surgery, during her recovery following her heart surgery, she accidently injured her foot and has to wear this huge boot, the boot was to be worn for 6 weeks, her 6 weeks have passed and she still needs to wear it; however, she was so hoping it would have been off before her surgery, but she now knows that this is not going to happen and she is fine with this. My family's prayer is that her eyesight is 20/20 once the cataract surgery is completed and that St. Lucy's intercession to God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit will restore her vision in her right eye as well. Thank you for listening to me and thank you for your prayers!

    St. Lucy please intercede on my dear sister's behalf. She is dealing with a condition that effects her vision. Through your intercession we pray that she finds the best medicine to control her condition so that her vision improves and stablizes so that she can live a complete and full life with good vision.
