St. Lucy is considered the patron saint of the eyes and for those who are blind and visually impaired. She was imprisoned and sentenced to death for her dedication to God. During her imprisonment, she is said to have prayed for her eyes to be preserved so that she could continue to see the world. It is said that God granted her this request, and when she was finally executed, her eyes remained intact.
Prayer to St Lucy Saint Lucy, whose beautiful name signifies 'LIGHT', by the light of faith which God bestowed upon you, increase and preserve His light in our souls, so that we may avoid evil, be zealous in the performance of good works, and abhor nothing so much as the blindness and the darkness of evil and sin.
Obtain for us, by your intercession with God, perfect vision for our bodily eyes and the grace to use them for God’s greater honor and glory and the salvation of souls. St. Lucy, virgin and martyr hear our prayers and obtain our petitions. Amen.
