Lucia and the light

A post on saint Lucy by my friend tara. Excited to read stories and celebrate st Lucy ‘ s day with her tonight at 6pm at saint francis.

I Might Need A Nap

there was long ago a girl named Lucia

whose faith and beliefs were so strong

that she refused to falter

and when they tried to move her

they could not,

even with all those men and oxen pulling

imagine that,

a little sprig of a girl,

barely old enough to be an adult

in today’s world

standing up, standing strong,

brave, unwavering, adoring

she traveled on the darkest of paths

with candles on her head

lighting the way

so she could carry more in her hands

to take to those in need,

those who were imprisoned,

lonely

she gave what she had,

selling her dowry to have

more to help others

and when her time came

to leave this world

at the hands of her accusers,

she only said a word of prayer

and let go

this day is her day

a day of sharing light,

the light that leads us down
