Icons of Our Holy Mother Lucy of Syracuse

Feast: Dec. 13

St. Lucy was born of noble parents in Syracuse, Sicily. When she refused marriage to a suitor during Diocletian's persecution of Christians, he denounced her as a believer. The governor sentenced her to be defiled in a brothel, but after she prayed she became fixed with an immense weight by the power of the Holy Spirit, so that no number of men was able to budge her from her spot. She was condemned to the flames, but the flames did not harm her. Finally, she was stabbed in the throat with a dagger and so she gave her spirit up to God. Holy Martyr Lucy, pray to God for us!
