October 18 is the feast day of St. Luke, the patron saint of St. Luke School and St. Luke Parish. Saint Luke was born of a pagan family in Antioch, Syria and converted to the true faith. He was the only Gentile Christian among the Gospel writers, being the author of the third Gospel. His Gospel shows the compassionate forgiving Christ, dealing with all people: outcasts, sinners, and the poor. He also wrote the Acts of the Apostles.
St. Luke was a missionary companion to Saint Paul on his second and third missionary journeys. Luke visited Paul during his imprisonment in Ceasare. During these two years, he had time to seek information and interview persons who had known Jesus. Luke also accompanied Paul on his dangerous journey to Rome. From Paul’s Epistles, we learn that Luke was a faithful companion to the end.
St. Luke was a physician by profession and skilful in painting. He is believed to have been martyred when he was about eighty-four years old. Saint Luke is the patron saint of doctors and of painters. The symbol of an ox most frequently used for Luke may have been applied to him because of his calm and strength, or because his Gospel begins and ends in the Temple.
St. Luke pray for us!
