Collect for the Feast of Saint Luke
Lord God, who chose Saint Luke
to reveal by his preaching and writings
the mystery of your love for the poor,
grant that those who already glory in your name
may persevere as one heart and one soul
and that all nations may merit to see your salvation.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
October — Month of the Rosary
Hail Mary, full of Grace,
The Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among women, and
Blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
Mother of God,
Pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death.
