1 Timothy 3:2-4

2A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach;

3Not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre; but patient, not a brawler, not covetous;

4One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity;

Prayer of the Day

Prayer to St. Luke the Evangelist in his day

Today October 18 we celebrate St. Luke the Evangelist, patron of doctors and artists, we ask for his intercession and we know his life

My God that you called St. Luke to spread with the word and with the pen

the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and as a physician and apostle, you guided him to approach the suffering brothers and to heal them in their physical and spiritual illnesses, give them through their intercession the strength necessary to withstand with the meekness of Christ all the trials of life.

Glorious Saint Luke, who through your intercession always adapted our lives to what you wrote in the gospel by grace and impulse of the Holy Spirit. And with a firm faith, through works, let us be a witness to the Love of Jesus Christ

Like you, we can feel very close to Mary our Mother of Heaven, and learn from her, her life, her virtues and her unconditional service to God

Through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Amen.
