October 18 – Saint Luke the Evangelist

Saint Luke

listenOur Father, Saint Luke the Evangelist was a physician who helped Saint Paul set up young faith communities.  Because he is a patron saint of doctors, I ask him to pray for everyone in the medical field.  May they see their work as a calling to serve You and become good examples of Your compassion.  I ask him to pray especially for those involved in performing abortions or euthanasia.  O Lord, teach them that all life is valuable.  Soften their hearts and lead them to repentance.  Help us who are pro-life to remember to love them always.  Father, forgive them, for they know not what they are doing.  Saint Luke, pray for us.  Amen.

Quote for Today

Saint Luke

quoteThen Jesus said to his disciples: “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat; or about your body, what you will wear. For life is more than food, and the body more than clothes. Consider the ravens: They do not sow or reap, they have no storeroom or barn; yet God feeds them. And how much more valuable you are than birds! Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to your life? Since you cannot do this very little thing, why do you worry about the rest?” (Luke 12:22-26 NIV)
