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.
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.
