St. Lucy - Roller Banner RB882

Artwork by the Benedictine Sisters of Turvey Abbey

Feast day: 13th December

Lucia of Syracuse (283–304), also called Saint Lucia or Saint Lucy, was a Christian martyr. She is venerated as a saint in the Roman Catholic, Anglican, Lutheran, and Eastern Orthodox churches. Her traditional feast day, known in Europe as Saint Lucia's Day, is observed by Western Christians on 13 December.

Lucy was born of rich and noble parents about the year 283. Her father was of Roman origin but died when she was five years old, leaving Lucy and her mother without a protective guardian. Her mother's name Eutychia seems to indicate that she came from a Greek background. Like many of the early martyrs, Lucy had consecrated her virginity to God, and she hoped to distribute her dowry to the poor.

A number of traditions incorporate symbolic meaning of St. Lucy as the bearer of light in the darkness of winter, her feast day being December 13. Because some versions of her story relate that her eyes were removed, either by herself or by her persecutors, she is the patron saint of the blind. She is also the patron saint of authors, cutlers, glaziers, labourers, martyrs, peasants, Perugia, Italy; saddlers, salesmen, and stained-glass workers.

The Caribbean island of Saint Lucia is named after her.
