catholic_saints_ Saint Lucy of Syracuse (283-304, feast day on December 13) was born of rich and noble parents of Roman origin living in Sicily. When she was five years old her father died and was left alone with her mother. Inspired by Saint Agatha, Saint Lucy consecrated her virginity to God at a young age. When her mother became ill they made a pilgrimage to the Shrine of St. Agatha who came to Lucy in a vision and told her that because of her faith her mother would be cured and that Lucy would become the glory of Syracuse. In response St. Lucy took the opportunity to persuade her mother to allow her to distribute a great part of her riches among the poor. While growing up, Lucy's mother wanted to secure her daughter's future by arranging a marriage to a young man from a wealthy pagan family, but she sternly refused. Emperor Diocletian began persecuting the Christians harshly and Saint Lucy was reported to the Governor of Syracuse. He ordered her to burn a sacrifice to the emperor's image and, when she refused, sentenced her to forced prostitution in a nearby brothel. When the guards came to take her away, God intervened by making her immovable and they could not move her even when they hitched her to a bunch of oxen. The guards tortured her by gouging out her eyes. They then put wood around her to burn her alive, but the fire did not harm her. Finally she got martyred by a sword piercing her neck. Because of the tradition to associate her name with light (Latin lux), Saint Lucy came to be thought of as the Patron Saint of sight, blind people, and eye-troubles. She is often depicted carrying her gouged-out eyes on a golden dish. 4d
