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 pray to St. Lucy that she help my friend who is a saintly priest and is suffering from glaucoma and cataracts, in fear of losing his sight. I ask that you intercede for him and help him keep the sight that he uses to proclaim the words of our Lord and to help him to continue being a person who has helped many others in their need. Amen.

    Dear St Lucy, please intercede with the Lord for the healing of my mother's left eye.
    She is having surgery for retinal detachment tomorrow. We pray that her vision will be restored as best as possible. We also pray for all those who need and have asked for your help with their eye problems. Thank you Lord for all blessings and for sending St Lucy to us as a source of comfort .

    Dear St. Lucy, (my sister's name sake) Please pray that Andrew's eye examination goes well for him and helps him acquire the job he applied for. He was told that color vision was not an issue but they are making him undergo more exams tomorrow. He is feeling down and dejected. Please help him with you prayers. I will make your name known to others

    Had the privilege of seeing st Lucy in her glass coffin in the church in Venice. I do not have eye problems, but said a quick prayer about a diabetic ulcer on my toe that had been treated by doctors for 4 years. I looked at Lucy's feet, with no shoes on & thought of all the rough terrain she had to tolerate with no shoes. Her feet were in rough shape. My prayer was quick, as the church was closing for the afternoon. Within 2 days the ulcer was gone, verified by one of my doctors, who said it was a "nice story." with all the walking we did around Europe, I had expected the ulcer to remain or maybe get worse. Thank you st Lucy for making me smile about your feet & the joy of experiencing this special undeserved Grace&blessing. I ask for your Blessed intercession for the others who so much would appreciate the touch that they can attribute to you.

    My name is Luciana and I was born on December 13 1968. Because I was born on that day my parents named me after the saint Lucia. As you know it's my birthday and my name sake. I am blessed to be part of this beautiful lady!
