Blessed Feast of St. Lucy!

I was even visited today by a little St. Lucy bringing me the traditional treats, warm from the oven.  Now I ask you, how sweet is that?

The collect for the day:  O almighty God, by whose grace and power Your holy martyr Lucia triumphed over suffering and remained ever faithful unto death, grant us, who now remember her with thanksgiving, to be so true in our witness to You in this world that we may receive with her new eyes without tears and the crown of light and life; through Jesus Christ, our Lord... (Treasury, p. 1012)
