When my granddaughters’ eye problems were quite bad, I prayed the following Short Novena to St. Lucy, and have prayed it each Friday since that time.
This evening, I offer it for Truidy and your intentions for her . . .
St. Lucy, virgin and martyr,
intercede for us to God.
You were a faithful disciple of Jesus and a loving servant of those in need,
Present my prayer of praise and supplication to God.
God of goodness and mercy, I praise and thank you for the many blessings I have received through your generous love. As I honor your servant, St. Lucy, for the light of faith you granted her, I ask that you increase and safeguard this same light within me. Grant that I may spend my life doing good and avoiding all that is not in accord with your will for me.
Trusting in your goodness and with confidence in your power to heal, I humbly ask, through the intercession of St. Lucy, for this grace: for good eye health and vision for Truidy. May all nations come to know the power of your love and the unfailing gift of your mercy so that we may, one day, gloridy you with all the saints in heaven. Amen
Our Father – Hail Mary – Glory Be
St. Lucy, virgin and martyr, hear my prayers and answer my petition.
