Lucia Light

Hear us, O God, our salvation, that, as we rejoice in keeping the festival of Blessed Lucy, thy virgin and martyr, so we may profit by the tender devotion we gain through her example. Through our Lord. Amen.
 Our celebration is being postponed to this evening due to early morning dentist appointments.

Happy Feast of St. Lucy!


  1. We had early dentist appointments too! COnsequencely, I completely forgot today was St. Lucia's feast day until I got to evening Mass and Father mentioned her in the opening prayer. Oops! Might celebrate tomorrow morning... :)

    I don't know if I ever told you congratulations about Cupcake, Ms. Charlotte! She's so beautiful - what a blessing! :)

    P.S. Why are you currently dairy free, out of curiosity?

  2. Well, I started eating dairy free when we suspected Cupcake had reflux because a lot of people said that it helped their baby's fussiness. She's on medication now and it doesn't seem to affect her reflux, but it does seem to affect her digestion. She will have fewer stinky diapers when I eat dairy and they seem to cause her more grief. When I eliminate the dairy and make sure I am keeping up my water intake, she seems to have an easier time getting the stink out.

  3. Oh, and thank you for your congratulations!

  4. what a beautiful statue! where did you get it? we have a little lucy in our family who had her first "nameday" today. :)

  5. I found this one on ebay after seeing one that a friend had in her collection of Dept. 56 statues. I did not pay nearly as much as I see they are priced at right now.
