Saint Lucy of Syracuse - Virgin and Martyr (303).
Saint Lucy was a young Christian maiden of Syracuse in Sicily. She had already offered her virginity to God and refused to marry, when Saint Agatha appeared in vision to she, and addressing her sister in the faith, foretold her mother’s recovery and Lucy’s future martyrdom: "You will soon be the glory of Syracuse, as I am of Catania". Saint Lucy died, predicting peace for the Church.
