As we celebrate St. Lucy’s feast day, we want to invoke her intercession on behalf of those whom we serve, especially those served by our St. Lucy Food Project. Bishop Loverde often refers to the poor in our diocese as the “invisible poor” because though we may not see them, we know they are always with us (cf. Mk 14:7).
As we pray to St. Lucy, may we pray for eyes to see the invisible poor among us and for hearts of selfless love to serve those in need.
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.
