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 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.
