Our Saint of the Week

October 18—LUKE, EVANGELIST was a Syrian physician from Antioch, who converted to the faith and became a companion of St. Paul.  Luke was the interpreter of Paul, just as St. Mark was for St. Peter. Drawing on Paul, Luke compiled the Gospel that bears his name and he passed down another account of the beginnings of the Church in the Acts of the Apostles.  Today’s serious biblical scholars believe that these books took the form we have them sometime between the years 70 and 85.  Luke’s Gospel was directed at gentile (non-Hebrew) Christians, speaking of God’s mercy, the universality of Christ’s message, God’s love of the lowly and the poor, and the working of the Holy Spirit.  St. Luke is represented by a winged ox, and is the patron of the medical profession, painters, artists, sculptors, and butchers.

Word on Friday:
