Heavenly Jesus, Saint Lucy vowed to marry only You and revealed this secret after her mother arranged a wedding to a nobleman. When he found out, he had her arrested and tried as a Christian. The judge sent her to a house of prostitution to desecrate her virginity, but You kept her purity intact. You also gave her the grace to joyfully endure her tortures until she died. I ask her intercede for the teenagers and unmarried adults in my family. Dear Lord, help them to see their chastity as a gift to You. I also ask her to pray for those You have chosen for a religious vocation as sisters, brothers, deacons and priests. Help them to hear You. Saint Lucy, pray for us. Amen.
