St. Lucy (283-304)
Lucy was born to a noble Greek family, brought up as a Christian by her mother, Eutychia. After her mother's miraculous cure at a shrine, Lucy made a vow of virginity and gave her riches to the poor. Angered by this, the man to whom she had been unwillingly betrothed denounced her to the Governor of Sicily. Condemned to a sentence of forced prostitution, she stood immovable and could not be dragged away, even by a team of oxen. Instead, the Governor had her tortured and killed.

Reflections from the Saints

Those whose hearts are pure are temples of the Holy Spirit.
