 Our Description

This richly illustrated laminated holy card shows St. Luke, the patron of physicians, with the book of the Gospels and a bull standing nearby.  On the back is the following prayer:

O St. Luke, you were chosen to reveal in preaching and writing God's love for the poor.  Moved by the heavenly Spirit of Love, you detailed the life of Jesus, showing His divinity and His genuine compassion for all human beings.

Help those who already glory in God's name to persevere in one heart and one mind, and inspire all people that they may hear the Good News of Salvation.

Born to pagan Greek parents, and possibly a slave. One of the earliest converts. Physician, studying in Antioch and Tarsus. Probably travelled as a ship's doctor; many charitable societies of physicians are named for him. Legend has that he was also a painter who may have done portraits of Jesus and Mary, but none have ever been correctly or definitively attributed to him; this story, and the inspiration his Gospel has always given artists, led to his patronage of them. He met Saint Paul at Troas, and evangelized Greece and Rome with him, being there for the shipwreck and other perils of the voyage to Rome, and stayed in Rome for Paul's two years of in prison. Wrote the Gospel According to Luke, much of which was based on the teachings and writings of Paul, interviews with early Christians, and his own experiences. Wrote a history of the early Church in the Acts of the Apostles. Martyr.
at Antioch
c.74 in Greece; some stories say he was martyred, others not; relics at Padua, Italy
