Oct. 18, 2016 (Feast of St. Luke)

Today, we celebrate one of the evangelists the author of the Gospel According to St. Luke/Acts of the Apostles. This makes Luke one of the most prolific writers in the N. T. He was also a companion of St. Paul. His writings have themes centered around the poor, prayer, the gift of the Holy Spirit, universal salvation, etc. His gospel is the one we have most heard from on Sundays in this Year C. Among other things, he is the patron of physicians and the medical profession.
