Lucy - stick to your promises
This Italian saint was born into a wealthy family at the end of the 3rd century. She was betrothed despite consecrating her virginity to God. Lucy wanted to share her wealth with the poor, and her suitor denounced her to the pagan governor. Tradition states that, refusing to denounce her faith, Lucy had her eyes gauged out and died after being stabbed in the throat.
