St. Lucia of Syracuse, Patron Saint of Eye Diseases and Writers

St. Lucia of Syracuse, also known as St. Lucy, is the patron saint of vision and the blind. Lucy, who had taken a vow of virginity, angered a man who had wished to marry her. He denounced her as a Christian to the Roman Emperor. Lucy was martyred after several attempts to make her give up her faith, including gouging out her eyes. Today, Saint Lucy is a source of hope for many who struggle with eye problems.
