Memorial of Saint Lucy, Virgin and Martyr


A depiction of St. Lucy by Francesco del Cossa. National Gallery of Art, Samuel H. Kress Collection.Not much is known about St. Lucy, who wecelebrate today, but she is mentioned by name in the Roman Canon (Eucharistic Prayer I).


St. Lucy is the patron saint of the blind. How can you care for the vulnerable in your community?


Pray for the marginalized in your community today.


Today is feast of St. Lucy, whose name means "light." Discuss ways your family can bring the light of Christ to others in your community.
