Saint Lucy Day

Today is Saint Lucy’s Day! Lucy was a Christian who died for her faith in ancient Rome, around the year 300. Her name means “light,” an important gift from God at this time of year. Read about her life here.

This Friday and all other Fridays of the year, in commemoration of the Lord’s crucifixion is a day “observed by special acts of discipline and self-denial” (BCP, p. 17).
