Wednesday, December 13, 2006St. Lucy pray for us
Today is the feast of one of our blog's patronesses: St. Lucy of Syracuse. Since she is associated with light, it is easy to incorporate activities into our Advent season, particularly with candles and such. I for one will be praying to St. Lucy today for her intercession with my son's eye infection.
Saint Lucy, you did not hide your light under a basket, but let it shine for the whole world, for all the centuries to see. We may not suffer torture in our lives the way you did, but we are still called to let the light of our Christianity illumine our daily lives. Please help us to have the courage to bring our Christianity into our work, our recreation, our relationships, our conversation -- every corner of our day. Amen
