Now let’s pray a special prayer asking for St. Lucy’s intercession

Saint Lucy, you did not hide your light under a basket,
but let it shine for the whole world,
for all the centuries to see.
We may not suffer torture in our lives the way you did,

but we are still called to let the light of our Christianity
illumine our daily lives.
Please help us to have the courage
to bring our Christianity into our work, our recreation, our relationships, our conversation
every corner of our day.

Amen

I hope you enjoy the new day we set aside for prayers. Fridays. My favorite mysteries are the Sorrowful Mysteries. Today though, in preparation for Advent, I would like to gently turn my focus on His birth. I hope you don’t mind.

 Please leave your prayer request below. If you do not leave your prayer request in time for my hour of Adoration, not to worry, I’m praying for you anyway.

Pax.

  1. Hello, Cristina! I love St. Lucy and the prayer that you shared today. My family is moving tomorrow, so I would appreciate prayers for clear weather and a successful and PEACEFUL moving day without anybody getting on each other’s nerves too much. hehe! Thank you! I will keep your intentions in my prayers as well.

  2. Hi. Cristina,
    It’s only now that I know that St. Lucy is also the saint of salesmen. I’m also a salesmen. Please help me pray to her that I will be successful in my sales business, I need to pay all my financial debts. Thank you.
