St Lucy is the Patron Saint of the blind, so it is fitting that there should exist a Prayer to St Lucy for the Eyes of the Body and Those of the Soul.
It’s important for we as Christians to learn how to see what is beneath the surface and to look at things with the eyes of God.
We should always see the spiritual element that is behind the physical.
Matthew 6:22-23 tells us:
The eye is the lamp of the body. So, if your eye is sound, your whole body will be full of light; but if your eye is not sound, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light in you is darkness, how great is the darkness!
Therefore, it is vital that our spiritual eyes be kept pure and that we do not allow them to linger on anything that would harm our faith.
Prayer to St Lucy for the Eyes of the Body & Those of the Soul
O St Lucy, you preferred to let your eyes be torn out instead of denying
the faith and defiling your soul; and God, through an extraordinary
miracle, replaced them with another pair of sound and perfect eyes to
reward your virtue and faith, appointing you as the protector against
eye diseases. I come to you for you to protect my eyesight and to heal
the illness in my eyes.
O St Lucy, preserve the light of my eyes
so that I may see the beauties of creation, the glow of the sun, the
colour of the flowers and the smile of children.
Preserve also the eyes of my soul, the faith, through which I can know my God, understand His teachings, recognize His love for me and never miss the road that leads me to where you, St Lucy, can be found in the company of the angels and saints.
St Lucy, protect my eyes and preserve my faith. Amen.
