Healing of Sight
Relying on your infinite goodness, O God,
we humbly ask you,
though the intercession of St Lucy, Virgin and Martyr,
to grant us improved vision,
so that we may serve you tirelessly,
for the remaining days of our life.
St Lucy, graciously hear our prayer
and grant us your loving help. Amen
O God, our Creator and Redeemer,
Mercifully hear our prayers as we venerate Thy servant, St. Lucy,
for the light of faith Thou didst bestow upon her,
Thou wouldst vouchsafe to increase
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 Thy goodness, O God,
we humbly ask Thee,
by the intercession of Thy servant, St. Lucy
that Thou wouldst give perfect vision to our eyes,
that they may serve for Thy greater honour 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.
… St Lucy of Syracuse, Pray for Us …
