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

    St. Lucy, Please pray for me. I am having eye pain and the discomfort frightens me. Pray that I will be not afraid and that there is nothing wrong. I struggle with worry, please pray that I will not worry too much. Be with me and help me as I pray to God for health and comfort. Amen

    St Lucy is my confirmation name and I am having a lot of trouble with my eyes so I have began to research St Lucy as I know she is the patron saint of the blind and eye troubles etc. What is the green thing she holds in the image on this page? In different images I can't tell whether it is a palm leaf or a feather? Does she have a motto of any kind? Answers would be really appreciated, thanks :)

    Saint Lucy is a wonderful saint to emulate! She is a blessing to us all. My future daughter will be named Lucy, after such a great saint and my amazing grandmother!

    this was very helpful. I chose st.lucy as my confirmation name. When i was in 3rd grade i did a report on her and have felt connected to her ever since. you can never find too much information about a saint that has lived several years centries ago. This site was great! :)

    I have enjoyed reading all the comments about Good St. Lucy and I am greatful for the information on her life. My husband, Jim, had eye surgery in Oct 2010. He has developed an infection behind that eye and having a very difficult time healing. He has an appointment this Thursday, Jan 13. Please St. Lucy hear me and intercede for Jim to our Lord Jesus Christ that my husband will be healed completely and his sight restored like new. I trust in you Jesus, Divine Mercy. Please St. Lucy ask our Lord to heal Jim's eye.

    I've just picked Saint Lucy to be my saint for conformation that wont happen for me for 4 or 5 years. Her story just inspires me, others chose St Jude, St Valentine, just because of there patron saint of _____, or the saint's feast day is their birthday, But i chose Saint Lucy because of her story, its sad but very inspiring.

    From an inspired catholic girl,
