St. Lucy is the patron saint of eye patients.
O God, Our Creator and Redeemer
mercifully hear our prayers that as
we venerate Thy Servant, St. Lucy,
for the light of faith Thou didst
betstow 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 blidness and the
darkness of evil and sin.
Relying on Thy goodness, O God,
we humbly ask Thee, by the
intercession of Thy servant, St. Lucy,
that Thou wouldst give perfect vision
to our eyes, that they may serve for
Thy greater honor and glory, and for
the salvation of our souls in this
world, that we may come to the enjoyment of the unfailing light of
the Lamb of God in paradise.
St. Lucy, virgin and martyr, hear our prayers and obtain our petitions.
