It is not always easy to admit our own role in the disagreements that occur from time to time. Admitting our own wrongs is really hard at times because in doing so we have to acknowledge uncertainties we may have regarding ourselves. This can be particularly difficult for those of us who experience a great deal of negative self-regard, but when we bring ourselves to see our part in the events that darken our relationship we shine the light on the relationship, and allow for love to grow once again. As we prepare for the Birth of the Christ Child, the Light of the World, let us take charge of the capacity for love and happiness in our marriage, and turn the light back on again. The name Lucy derives from the Latin word lucere which means “to shine.” Saint Lucy despite persecution you did not fail to let your love for our Lord shine. Help us seek the courage we need to let our light shine today and to illuminate our marriage with love today and always. Happy Festival of Lights! Make a great day!
Today we recall the good life, gifts and works of Saint Lucy, Virgin and Martyr. Happy Feast Day to Rachel Lucille!
