St. Lucy

Today we celebrate the Memorial of St. Lucy, Virgin and Martyr and patron saint for the blind.  Prayer to St. Lucy:

Saint Lucy, you did not hide your light under a basket, but let it shine for the whole world, for all the centuries to see. We may not suffer torture in our lives the way you did, but we are still called to let the light of our Christianity illumine our daily lives. Please help us to have the courage to bring our Christianity into our work, our recreation, our relationships, our conversation — every corner of our day.  Amen
