St. Lucy

St. Lucy (283 – 304) lived during a time when the Roman Emperor wanted to destroy the Christian faith. She had great love for Jesus and promised her life to Him. Rejecting a marriage to a non-believer, she was tortured and killed for her faith. The torturers even removed her eyes but God restored them. St. Lucy is the patron saint of the blind and those with eye ailments. Her name literally means ‘light’. Her feast day is on December 13.
