Saint Lucy

It starts off with a slow procession from room to room...all is in darkness
           as we enter a space we pray and ask God's blessing on it and on the people who use it.

              as we walk we sing those well-remembered hymns of waiting

                      amidst all this is one who returns secretly to the living room
                                so that when we enter it finally

                                       all is alight       with

candle light

a treat specially cooked for this feast day also awaits us

may the simple light of St Lucy's faith light our Advent to the Christ child in whom is all light
