Visit from St. Lucia December 13, 2020

We had a visit from St. Lucia on December 13th. Lucia was a young Christian girl who, at about 14 years of age, died for her faith, helping others in 304 AD. Lucia would carry food to Christians hiding in the catacombs of Rome. She would carry the food in her arms and wore a crown of candles upon her head so, the Christians knew she was unarmed and offering support. Lucia means “Light”. The strongly Lutheran countries of Sweden, Norway and Denmark celebrate her feast day of December 13th.
