Saint Loucia - Byzantine Icon
Iconographer: Holy Monastery of St.Meletios
Commemorates on: December 13
Saint Lucia was from Syracuse in Sicily, a virgin betrothed to a certain pagan. Since her mother suffered from an issue of blood, she went with her to the shrine of Saint Agatha at Catania to seek healing. There Saint Agatha appeared to Lucia in a dream, assuring her of her mothers healing, and foretelling Lucias martyrdom. When her mother had been healed, Lucia gladly distributed her goods to the poor, preparing herself for her coming confession of Christ. Betrayed as a Christian by her betrothed to Paschasius the Governor, she was put in a brothel to be abased, but was preserved in purity by the grace of God. Saint Lucia was beheaded in the year 304, during the reign of Diocletian.

The icon of St. Euphrosynos arrived in a very timely manner. I was impressed with the care and proper protection of the icon for mailing. The icon is even more beautiful than I expected. I was chrismated a couple of Sundays ago, and this is the perfect gift for my Godmother. I will definitely order
