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.

Holy Mary,

Mother of God,

Pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death.
