Our Patroness St. Lucie
Our patroness is a woman who Saint Lucy is a saint who is venerated in the Catholic Church. The feast day is on December 13th. Patron Saint of the Blind Lucy’s given name means “light,” and it derives from the same origin as the word “lucid,” which means “clear, brilliant, and easily intelligible.” Unfortunately for us, Lucy’s past does not correspond to her given name. All that we know about this heroic lady who lived in Syracuse during the persecution of Christians in the early fourth century is shrouded in the mists of time.
Mary adoration expanded to Rome, and by the sixth century, the entire Church had come to admire her for her bravery in the defense of the religion.
It relates the narrative of a young Christian lady who had dedicated her life to the service of Christ, and it has been passed down to us.
Lucy obviously realized that her mother would not be persuaded by a little girl’s commitment, so she planned a strategy to persuade her mother that Christ was a far more powerful life partner than she had previously thought.
- Now that Lucy had expressed her wish to donate her money to the needy and dedicate her life to God, her thankful mother was ready to listen.
- This governor attempted to force her into prostitution, but when the guards arrived to take her away, they discovered her to be as rigid and hefty as a mountain.
- While the specifics of Lucy’s case are unknown, we do know that many Christians were subjected to severe torment and a horrible death as a result of their religion during Diocletian’s rule.
- Lucy’s name is presumably also associated with sculptures of Lucy holding a dish with two eyes on it, which are common in the area.
- Lucy’s eyes are restored by God at the conclusion of the fable.
- The truth is that, whatever the veracity of the tales surrounding Lucy, the fact remains that her bravery to stand up and be counted as a Christian in the face of torture and death should serve as a beacon for us as we travel our own paths through life.
- The use of Braille is an essential mode of communication for those who have visual impairments or who are blind.
- Saint Lucy, you did not bury your light beneath a basket, but instead allowed it to shine brightly for all to see over the years.
Please assist us in having the bravery to incorporate our Christian beliefs into our job, our pleasure, our relationships, and our discourse – in every aspect of our lives. Thank you. Amen
Q. How did Port St. Lucie get its name? — PORT ST. LUCIE HISTORICAL SOCIETY
A.According to the St. Lucie County website, historians think that the Spanish were the first to use the term “St. Lucie” to refer to this region. The name was given when the Spanish began building of a fort on December 13, 1567, the feast day of the Roman Catholic Saint Lucia. The fort was completed the following year. As historical Spanish maps designate this region as Santa Lucia, the “Santa Lucia” colony was built somewhere between Vero Beach and Stuart about 1567. The colony encompassed roughly what is now known as Vero Beach to Stuart and was located anywhere between Vero Beach and Stuart.
- Seminoles (Creek Indians from Alabama and Georgia) and escaped slaves began to establish themselves on the Treasure Coast in the 1830s and 1840s.
- Lucie,” would not be officially adopted as the official name of the region until the 1900s.
- Port Charlotte, on the Gulf Coast, was the first large town created by General Development Corp, the same company that developed Port St.
- In order to promote all of the huge developments that GDC had planned for Florida, the company decided to add “Port” in the titles of all of the developments.
- John, Port LaBelle, and North Port were among the other projects built by the corporation that filed for bankruptcy protection in 1991.

St. Lucy – Saints & Angels
Lucy’s biography has been lost to time, and the only thing we know for definite about this heroic lady who lived in Syracuse during the persecution of Christians in the early fourth century is that she died as a result of the persecution. Mary adoration expanded to Rome, and by the sixth century, the entire Church had come to admire her for her bravery in the defense of the religion. Legends began to emerge as a result of people’s desire to shine light on Lucy’s bravery and determination. That which has stood the test of time is the narrative of a young Christian woman who made a pledge to devote her life to the service of Christ when she was young.
Lucy had a dream about seeing Saint Agatha after several hours of devotion at the tomb of Saint Agatha.
Agatha’s promise that her disease would be cured through faith.
Despite the governor’s attempts to compel her into defiling herself in a brothel, the guards who arrived to remove her were unable to move her, even after tying her to a team of oxen.

Please don’t move your cursor past this.

- Demonstrate to the rest of the world that you value access to Catholic education.
- Help Now After stacking bundles of wood around her, the guards were unable to get the fire to burn, and they were forced to resort to their swords, which led to Lucy’s death.
- During Diocletian’s rule, they were subjected to horrendous torture and suffered tragic deaths on a regular basis.
- Lucy’s tale did not come to an end after she died.
- Upon hearing this, the governor ordered the guards to gouge out her eyes; however, according to another version of the story, Lucy was the one who removed her eyes in an attempt to deter a persistent suitor who had developed a strong affection for them.
Sigebert (1030-1112), a monk of Gembloux, authored the sermo de Sancta Lucia, in which he represented Lucy’s body as having remained undisturbed in Sicily for 400 years until Faroald II, Duke of Spoleto, captured the island and transported Lucy’s remains to Abruzzo, Italy, where they were interred.
- Vincent, where it remains today.
- Vincent’s is still a mystery, however it is thought that many fragments of her body have been discovered in Rome, Naples, Verona, Lisbon, Milan, Germany, France and Sweden as well as other cities around Europe.
- She is frequently seen holding a cup or dish with the symbol of eyes on it.
In the words of Saint Lucy: “Saint Lucy, you did not conceal your light under a basket, but you allowed it to shine brightly for the entire world to see, for all of time.” We may not be subjected to torture in our everyday lives in the same manner that you were, but we are nonetheless obligated to let the light of our Christian faith to illuminate our daily lives, as you were.
Please help us to have the courage to integrate our Christian faith into our job, our pleasure, our relationships, and our discourse – in every aspect of our lives. We appreciate your assistance. Amen

BBC – Religions – Christianity: Saint Lucy
Saint Lucy is frequently shown with a pair of eyes, like in this picture by Domenico di Pace Beccafumi. The feast day of Santa Lucia – Saint Lucy is celebrated on the 13th of December. Saint Lucy’s Day, also known as the Feast of St. Lucy, is observed by Catholics and Orthodox Christians, as well as by members of the Lutheran Church. Celebrations are held in the United States and Europe, particularly in Scandinavia. Lucy, whose name literally translates as ‘light,’ is the patron saint of the visually impaired.
She was the daughter of a slave.
The legend of Lucy
Lucy is claimed to have been the daughter of a wealthy nobleman who died when she was a little girl, according to tradition. Her mother, who was not a Christian, desired to arrange a marriage between Lucy and a wealthy pagan. Lucy had given her life to Christ and made a vow to be a virgin for the rest of her life. She desired to donate the money planned for her dowry to the impoverished instead of spending it on herself. Caravaggio’s Burial of Saint Lucy (c. 1608), for example. It was Lucy’s mother who accompanied her to the grave of Saint Agatha.
- Lucy’s mother made the decision to become a Christian.
- (The governor’s given name is Paschasius, which is sometimes used.) Lucy first refused to offer sacrifices to the governor’s gods, stating that she would only make sacrifices to Christ via her good actions.
- In a picture by Sebastiano Ricci from 1730, Lucy is shown receiving communion before her crucifixion.
- Lucy, on the other hand, stated that her soul would stay pure no matter what was done against her will.
- Lucy was put to death after enduring a series of torturous treatment.
- Her prophecy of the demise of the governor, the emperor, and his co-regent remained even after she was stabbed through the neck with a knife, according to a slightly fantastical thirteenth-century recounting recorded in the book The Golden Legend.
Alternatively, her eyes were taken out and afterwards repaired by God, a narrative that lends credence to her affiliation with the blind and explains why she is frequently shown with two eyes on a serving dish.
Port St. Lucie, Florida: 10 things you might not know about Florida’s eighth biggest city
Note from the editor: This is the fifth installment in a series spotlighting interesting and little-known facts and tidbits about cities and villages along the Treasure Coast.

Mounds of history
Because the Spruce Bluff Preserve sits right next to the homes on Southbend Boulevard, it’s possible that many of the families who live there now are unaware of the wealth of history that resides in their own backyards. According to documentation from the Port St. Lucie Historical Society, the southern route features Spruce Bluff Mound, which was most likely constructed by the Ais people and dates back to 100-300 B.C., according to the sources. An early pioneer hamlet and cemetery along the banks of the North Fork of the St.

OK. Who forgot to spellcheck?
Several street names in Port St. Lucie have been incorrectly spelt for reasons we do not understand:
- Northeast Twylite Terrace
- Northeast Granduer Avenue
- Southeast and Southwest Cresent Avenue
- Northeast Twylite Terrace
- Northeast Granduer Avenue Although the issue was discovered on March 14, 2016, the City Council approved an ordinance to correct the situation. Southeast Chello Lane (Adjacent streets are named Trumpet and Harp, so it’s safe to assume it’s supposed to be Cello. )
- Southwest Calender Street
- Southwest Amethist Terrace
- Southeast Issac Road
- Southwest Lama Avenue
- Southeast Saphire Terrace
- Southwest Dalmation Avenue
- Southwest Starlite Cove
- Southeast Nome Drive (Is it supposed to be named after Nome, Alaska, or should it be spelled Gnome? )
- Southwest Star Along Southeast Addison Street, there is one street sign that is correctly worded. It is written Addision on the other sign along the route.
Additionally, there are a few amusing street names such as Southwest Haleyberry Avenue, Blolly Court, and Southwest Kickaboo Road, among others. Port St. Lucie Boulevard, west of Gatlin Boulevard, has multiple “Mc” streets with amusing names, such McHole and McCracken, which are located along the corridor.

She sells seashells. on U.S. 1
Eight years before Port St. Lucie was incorporated as a city, Jean and George Williams operated a business along U.S. 1 near what would become the city’s southern edge, selling “anything shell” to passing motorists. It’s impossible to miss The Shell Bazaar, located at 10100 S. United States Highway 1, because, well, there’s a 5,000-pound facsimile of a conch shell there to reel people in. Visitors going down the East Coast in the 1950s became a must-see destination because of the shell, which was constructed between 1954 and 1955.
Other items available at the Shell Bazaar include jewelry made of coral, shells, and glass.
In today’s world, the business is owned and operated by Christine Williams, George and Jean Williams’ daughter. It is the oldest retail, family-owned business in the county and the only one that is still in its original site.
What’s in a name?
First Data Field, the spring training home of the New York Mets, was not named that such at the time of its construction. In reality, the stadium, which seats 7,160 people and serves as the summer home of the St. Lucie Mets, has gone by four different titles since it was built in 1988. From 1988 until 2004, the stadium was known as Thomas J. White Stadium, in honor of the real estate tycoon who was instrumental in bringing the Mets to New York. St. Lucie West was likewise created by White. More:What is the name of the business who built the ‘new’ First Data Field for the New York Mets?
Tradition Field was renamed Digital Domain Park in 2010, and then again in 2013, when it was changed back to Tradition Field.
More:The New York Mets have renamed their spring training facility First Data Field.
Why ‘Port’ when there’s no port?
General Development Corp., the state’s largest property development corporation, founded Port St. Lucie in the 1950s, and its first major city, Port Charlotte, was constructed on Florida’s Gulf Coast in the 1960s. It therefore became GDC’s marketing strategy to incorporate the word “Port” in the names of all of the significant developments that the company was contemplating. Port Malabar (now a part of Palm Bay), Port St. John, Port LaBelle, and North Port were among the other new developments in the area.

A city. without residents?
According to the Port St. Lucie Historical Society, by February 1961, 250 residences had been constructed in the River Park neighborhood of the expanding city of Port St. Lucie. (In a rough T-shape, River Park is bordered on the east by U.S. 1 and on the north by Prima Vista Boulevard. On the south by Lakehurst Drive, and on the west by Airoso Boulevard, River Park is bordered by U.S. 1. When the GDC petitioned the state government to include the 70 miles of unoccupied area within Port St. Lucie, it specifically left out the developed lands as a point of emphasis.

Port St. Lucie has peacocks of its own
The peacocks that walk the streets of Fort Pierce along Seventh Street and Orange Avenue are well-known to the locals and tourists alike. Along Northeast Sottong Drive in Rio, there are also dozens of peacocks — sometimes as many as 40 of them — to be seen. As reported by journalist Gil Smart on March 23, all of them are believed to be derived from a flock that was initially brought and cared for by Hollywood actress, singer, and philanthropist Frances Langford, who was perhaps Rio’s most renowned inhabitant.

HANDS of St. Lucie County offers primary healthcare services as well as access to a continuum of healthcare to qualified, low-income, uninsured adult residents of St. Lucie County who meet the program’s eligibility requirements.
