Advent Feast Day: St. Lucy, Virgin and Martyr

St. Lucy (part of a larger work by Fra Lippi)

St. Lucy (283-304) enlightens our path through the darkness of Advent to the Bright-light of Christmas!

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
