St. Lucy

There are many saints with the name Lucy–there\’s even a Dominican Lucy, Blessed Lucy of Narni (we\’re not making this up!), but the Lucy we remember today is a virgin martyr from the early days of Christianity. She is the patroness of people who are blind, because according to legend, her eyes were put out. Today we pray especially for all who are blind or having trouble with their vision–physical or spiritual. May St. Lucy enlighten these days of Advent for us all!
