Please Pray For Me!

I seem to have gone blind in my right eye. My sight is not the best at any time. I had a cataract in my right eye that was removed years ago, but I've developed one in my left eye that's not 'ripe (ready for surgery) yet, so, thanks to the surgery on my right eye, it's been my 'good' one. 

This morning, when I awoke, I noticed that my vision was a bit blurry, As the day progressed, it's gotten worse. It's now to the point that I'm effectively blind in the right eye. I can distinguish light and dark, but that's about it.

This has happened before, and it cleared up after a day or so, but it's frightening! Please offer a prayer asking St Lucy, Patroness of eye problems to pray for me. Here's the prayer I'm saying.

Saint Lucy
Whose beautiful name signifies 'LIGHT'
by the light of faith which God bestowed upon you
increase and preserve His light in my soul
so that I may avoid evil,
Be zealous in the performance of good works
and abhor nothing so much as the blindness and
the darkness of evil and sin.
Obtain for me, by your intercession with God
Perfect vision for my bodily eyes
and the grace to use them for God’s greater honour and glory
and the salvation of souls.
St. Lucy, virgin and martyr
hear my prayers and obtain my petitions.
Amen.

  1. Please go to an Emergency Room ASAP. Tell them what has happened and what happened in the past. This may need immediate attention before your vision is permanently lost. (I work in the medical profession.)

  2. Oh, I am sad for you! I will keep you in my prayers, most certainly! May our merciful Jesus heal you and comfort you, it is most disconcerting to have this happen.
    If you have not already done so, please do go to the ER as has been recommended. Get the best eye specialist (opthamologist) you can find. It's worth a bit of travel to get the best opinion. As has been suggested, time can be key.
    Jesus, have mercy and restore his vision.
    Our Lady, please intercede for him.
    St. Padre Pio, pray for him.
    St. Anthony, pray for him.
    St. Jude, pray for him.
    St. Lucy, pray for him.
    All the angels and saints, pray for him.
    Amen.

Comments are subject to deletion if they are not germane. I have no problem with a bit of colourful language, but blasphemy or depraved profanity will not be allowed. Attacks on the Catholic Faith will not be tolerated. Comments will be deleted that are republican (Yanks! Note the lower case 'r'!), attacks on the legitimacy of Pope Francis as the Vicar of Christ (I know he's a heretic and a Protector of Perverts, and I definitely want him gone yesterday! However, he is Pope, and I pray for him every day.), the legitimacy of the House of Windsor or of the claims of the Elder Line of the House of France, or attacks on the legitimacy of any of the currently ruling Houses of Europe.
