"Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks, receives, and the one who seeks, finds, and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened." Matthew 7:7-8
Prayer is an essential tool for healing and is an excellent source of comfort, courage and strength for those who are suffering. During times of illness, disease or a life challenge, nothing is more important than to offer prayer and to join with others in assurance of these prayers.
In addition to prayer, the Saints protect us against harm, help strengthen our faith and offer spiritual guidance and healing. They are our models of prayer and their intercession helps present powerful prayers of healing to God on our behalf.

Saint Lucy was born of a rich and noble family in the year 283 in Syracuse, Sicily. Her father died when she was young and her mother, Eutychia, who suffered from a painful illness, arranged a marriage for her. Growing up a Christian, Lucy vowed her life to God. To change her mother's mind about the marriage, Lucy prayed at the tomb of Saint Agatha, and her mother's illness was cured. Her mother agreed with Lucy's desire to live for God and allowed her to renounce the engagement.
The rejected bridegroom denounced Lucy as a Christian and had the governor order her death. The governor had her tortured by gouging her eyes out, but God restored her eyesight. The governor then ordered her to be set on fire. Again, God interceded and she was saved. Lucy was later martyred with a dagger.
Saint Lucy is recognized today as the patroness of those who suffer from blindness and eye ailments.
Her feast day is December 13th.
Saint Lucy, Pray for Us.
