Feast of St. Lucia in Rome...

The feast of St. Lucy in Rome is always a delight. If you go to her Gonfalone parish in the afternoon, you will stand in awe as many, many hundreds and hundreds of Romans (mostly elderly women) flock to this church to buy candles on the steps and then to wait in line to touch the candles to this reliquary. In this same church there are two relics of St. Lucy (buried in Venice but died in Sicily).
