St Luke

Of the four Gospels, St. Luke’s tells us most about Our Lady and the Saviour’s infancy. We shall be hearing a lot from him at Christmas time. There are delightful legends about him, as well as what we know from the Bible itself. He was a friend of St Paul, who calls him “the Beloved Physician”, indicating that Luke was a doctor of bodies, turned doctor of souls. St Luke wrote not only the gospel but the Book of Acts. He changes the way he tells the story at the point he met Paul, from 'they did this' to 'we did that'. Legends say that he used to paint icons onto the surface of his kitchen table. Several places in the world claim to have such icons in their church. He is venerated for his gospel writing, and as a patron of artists and of doctors.
