St Lucy, Saint of Syracuse, has been venerated from earliest times, her martyrdom having taken place during the Diocletian persecution. She is mentioned in the Roman Canon of the Mass along with Saints Agnes, Cecilia and others.

It is particularly appropriate that a Saint whose name means ‘Light’ is commemorated in the darkest time of the year in the Northern Hemisphere. ‘The Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it’, as St John tells us in his Prologue.

May St Lucy pray for us, and may God bless you this day.
