The Life of lucy
Much of Lucy's history has been lost, but there are many legends about Lucy's life. All of the legends say that Lucy's mother tried arranging a marriage with a pagan man, which caused Lucy to run away and pray to Saint Agatha.
Agatha cured Lucy's mom which caused her to cancel the marriage. This caused the governor to become furious and try to force her into a life of prostitution, but no one could physically take her away when they tried because she stuck in her place, even with all the man power they had.
The men tried to set Lucy on fire, but the wood around her wouldn't burn. Her life was finally taken when the soldiers decided that they would use their swords instead.
• Legends about Lucy say that she either was forced to remove her eyes by a cruel governor or she gouged her eyes out to stop a suitor who loved them.
• When her body was being prepared for her burial, her eyes were restored.
• Lucy's body is said to be scattered all around Europe, and even said to have been stolen by criminals and returned on her Feast Day.
• Lucy's name means "light" or "lucid".
