Prayer to St. Lucy
O God, our Creator and Redeemer,
mercifully hear our prayers
as we venerate Thy servant, St. Lucy,
for the light of faith Thou didst bestow upon her,
Thou wouldst vouchsafe to increase
and to preserve this same light in our souls,
that we may be able to avoid evil, to do good
and to abhor nothing so much as the blindness
and the darkness of evil and of sin.
Relying on your goodness, O God,we humbly ask you,
through the intercession of St. Lucy,Virgin and Martyr,
to give perfect vision to our eyes,
that they may serve your greater honor and glory.
St. Lucy, hear our prayers and obtain our petitions.
