The Feast of St Lucy, VM, IIIrd Class

Today is the Feast of St Lucy.

The Collect from the Roman Breviary:

Graciously hear us, O God of our salvation : that, like as we do rejoice in the festival of blessed Lucy thy holy Virgin and Martyr ; so we may learn to follow her in all godly and devout affections. Through.

The Proper Lessons may be found here.

The article on her from the Catholic Encyclopædia.

From Blessed Jacobus Voragine's The Golden Legend.

From Magnificat.

From Medieval Saints at Yahoo!

From Wikipedia.

And, also from Wikipedia, an article on how her Feastday is celebrated, even in protestant countries.

I like St. Lucy. My favorite way to celebrate her feast day is to light a huge bonfire in the front yard & dance around it singing "Santa Lucia".

It's fun being the only Catholic on the block.
