Prayer in Honour of St. Lucy

O God, our creator and Redeemer,
mercifully hear our payers
as we venerate Your servant, St. Lucy,
for the light of faith, You bestowed upon her,
we hope you will increase and 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 blindness
and the darkness of evil and of sin.
Relying on Your goodness, O God, we humbly ask You,
by the intercession of Your servant, St. Lucy,
that You will give perfect vision to our eyes,
that they may serve for Your greater honour 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.
