Christmas nails, thirteenth of December



My Christmas Calender of
nails on the 13th of December needs to be devoted to St. Lucy,
a younger Sicilian woman who
was martyred, killed for her religion, in 304.

I’ve instructed the story earlier than, however right here it’s once more:

Within the 12 months 300 Lucia lived
within the metropolis of Syracuse in Sicily. It was a tough life, with a father who had
died and a mom who was critically unwell. 
To make sure Lucia a lifetime of wealth, her mom tried to get her married
off. The younger woman did not need that. She ran to the tomb of Saint Agatha and
prayed on her knees for steerage. Miraculously, the mom recovered and referred to as
off Lucia’s upcoming wedding ceremony. As an alternative, Lucia gave her complete dowry to the poor
of the town.

Lucia’s fiancé, after all, was not very blissful about this information. As a revenge, he
gossiped to the emperor about Lucia’s Christian religion. Presently, the
Christians had been persecuted, and Lucia was subsequently condemned to be burned at
the stake. Legend has it she died agency in her religion, with a burning lamp in her

After her demise, Lucia was declared a saint. In artwork and folklore she is
depicted with a crown of candles, and her memorial feast, which was generally
celebrated in direction of the tip of the Center Ages, is devoted to mild. The title
Lucia comes from the Latin phrase lux, that means “mild”. Santa Lucia’s
martyrdom was marked within the Catholic Church calendar on the day of her demise,
13 December.
