Last week’s question
Who is the patron saint of the blind?

a. Agatha
b. George
c. Michael
d. Lucy

The correct answer is D. Saint Lucy (283–304), also known as Saint Lucia, was a wealthy young Christian martyr who is venerated as a saint by Roman Catholic, Anglican, Lutheran, and Orthodox Christians. Her feast day in the West is December 13. Her name derives from lux, lucis, or light, and she is the patron saint of the blind.

St. Agatha is the patron saint of Catania, Molise, and San Marino, and also of Malta, because her intercession is reported to have saved Malta from Turkish invasion in 1551. St. George is the patron saint of Bulgaria, Aragon, Catalonia, England, Ethiopia, Georgia, Greece, India, Iraq, Lithuania, Israel, Portugal, Serbia and Russia, as well as numerous cities, professions, organizations and disease sufferers. Michael is an archangel in Jewish, Christian, and Islamic tradition. He is viewed as the field commander of the Army of God.
