O God, our Creator and Redeemer,
Mercifully hear our prayers as we venerate Your servant, St. Lucy,
for the light of faith You bestowed upon her,
and to preserve this same light in our souls,
that we may be able to avoid evil,
to do good and to abhor nothing
so much as the blindness
and the darkness of evil and of sin.
Relying on Your goodness, O God,
we humbly ask You,
by the intercession of Your servant,
St. Lucy that You give perfect vision to our eyes,
that they may serve for Your greater honor and glory,
and for the salvation of our souls in this world,
that we may come to the enjoyment
of the unfailing light of the Lamb of God in paradise.
St. Lucy, virgin and martyr,
hear our prayer and obtain our petitions.
