COLLECT FOR THE REMEMBRANCE OF ST. LUKE (October 18)


Almighty God, who inspired your servant

Luke the physician
to set forth in the Gospel the love and healing power
of your Only Begotten One:
Graciously continue in your Church this love and power to heal, 
to the praise and glory of your Name;

who lives and reigns with you, 
in the unity of the Holy Spirit, 
one God, now and for ever. Amen.

O Shepherd of us all, 
who inspired your servant Saint Luke the physician 
to set forth in the Gospel the love and 
healing power of your Beloved and Anointed One. 
Grant, we ask you, to keep and embrace within your Spirit 
the world and all its inhabitants 
unto the wholeness of your perfect justice and peace. 
Blessed are You, and blessed is your Kin-Dom, 
now and forever. Amen.
