From time to time we find ourselves faced with a serious temptation especially those ones we are most prone to. I have found that recourse to God and his Saints goes a long way to mitigate or even eliminate our subseptability to such temptations.
Arming yourself with God’s grace is the sure way to conquer. If you do not pray, you are almost guaranteed to fail. Here’s our suggestion:
By that singular predilection, O glorious Saint Lucy, which thy immaculate Spouse, Jesus Christ, had for thee, when by an unheard of miracle He rendered thee immovable in spite of all the attempts of thy enemies to drag thee into a place of sin and infamy, obtain for me the grace never to yield to the temptations of the world, the flesh, and the devil, and the fight constantly against their assaults by the continual mortification of all my senses.
Pray for us, O blessed Lucy.
R. That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
Let us Pray.
Mercifully hear us, O God of our salvation, that even as we rejoice in the constant faith of blessed Lucy, thy Virgin and Martyr, so we may be instructed in sentiments of loving devotion. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
