Lucius, whose name evokes the idea of light, shone by his courage in the midst of the hardest persecution. He governed The Church under the Emperors Gallus and Volusian and was Martyred in 254 A.D.

Like Jesus in His public life, he was, says Saint Cyprian, “the Pastor who guards the flock, the Pilot who steers the ship, the King who leads his people, and, in one word, Bishop, of The Church”.

Mass: Sacerdótes Dei.
