mercifully hear our prayers
that as we venerate your servant,
for the light of faith you bestowed upon her,
you would increase and 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.
Wishing you all a blessed Advent season, on this day, the Feast of Santa Lucia, December 13.
