Gaudete Sunday

Rejoice! Christmas is near!

Saint Lucy

Seven years ago today, on her feast day, Saint Lucy answered my prayers and through her intercession my children and I now live in the home which we call "Rivendell"; a photograph of Saint Lucy's shrine in Syracuse has its place of honor on a little table near our front door in thanksgiving for this great favor.

It is also my youngest sister Kris's birthday: through Saint Lucy's intercession, she was cured of hemorrhage in her eye when she was only a few days old. Happy birthday, Kris!

Saint Lucy, thank you; and please pray for us.
