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.

    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.

    St. Lucy, Please intercede on my mother"s behalf that her left eye by restored. She recently had cataract surgery done and is having slight discomfort afterward. Please help her with the intercession of Jesus Christ that she gets better and that she can be able to see better. I know that after a surgery like that there will be a couple of days of discomfort, but I hope and pray that she recovers soon. Thank you.

    Dearest St. Lucy,

    You know how my condition on my right eye affects my way of life. I'm scared. But I know that everything is possible with God. Please help me pray that the scar on the center of my cornea be healed in His time. May I have the courage and patience to accept His Will. Please embrace me and perform a beautiful miracle on my right eye. Thanks.
