Acording to the trandional story st Lucy was born about the year 283 to wealthy and noble parents.

However, Lucy's mother not aware of Lucy’s promise and suffering from a bleeding disorder worried for Lucy’s future. She arranged for Lucy to become wed to a young man of a wealthy pagan family. St. Agatha came to Lucy in a dream and told her that because of her faith her mother would be cured and that Lucy would be the glory of Syracuse, With her mother cured, Lucy took the opportunity to persuade her mother to allow her to distribute a great amount of her riches among the poor.Euthychia suggested that the sums would make a good bequest, but Lucy countered, "...whatever you give away at death for the Lord's sake you give because you cannot take it with you. Give now to the true Savior, while you are healthy, whatever you intended to give away at your death". News of the riches being distributed came to Lucy's betrothed, who denounced her to Paschasius, the Governor of Syracuse. He ordered lucy to burn a scrafice in the emperor's image, lucy refused and Paschasius sentenced her to be defiled in a brothel. The Christian tradition states that when the guards came to take her away, they could not move her even when they hitched her to a team of oxen. Bundles of wood were then heaped onto her and set on fire, but they would not burn. Lucy then soon met her death by the sword. she was martyred in the year 304.
