The Holy Apostle Luke

Masters, Fathers, Mothers, Brothers, and Sisters, Bless!

Blessed Fast!

The following is from the life of St. Luke (The Great Synaxaristes: October; Holy Apostles Convent, Buena Vista, CO, 2002. page 357):

Saint Luke was a painter.... acceding to the pious desire of the early Christians, was the first to paint the image of the all-holy Theotokos.... On seeing the icons, she said: "May the grace of Him Who was born of me, through me, be imparted to them."

In Christ,
+ Fr. Noah
