About Today Readings

St Luke Evangelist.

2 Timothy 4:10-17. Psalm 144(145):10-13, 17-18. Luke 10:1-9.

Your friends tell the glory of your kingship, Lord — Psalm 144(145):10-13, 17-18.

‘The Kingdom of God has come near to you.’

St Luke contributed about a quarter of the New Testament. His name is attached to the third gospel, as well as the Book of the Acts of the Apostles.

St Luke is one of the great artisans of the early church. He wrote the story of Jesus with a particular emphasis on compassion, inclusivity and hospitality. He left many unique stories, such as the infancy narratives, and the Good Samaritan and the Prodigal Son. Let us give thanks for the Good News St Luke has left us. How do we live the story of Jesus?
