Bearing good news...

How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him who brings 
glad tidings of peace, bearing good news, announcing salvation! 
- Isaiah 52:7  Entrance Antiphon - Feast of St Luke

Prayer over the Offerings (Today's Liturgy)
Grant through your heavenly gifts that we may
serve you in freedom of heart, we pray, O Lord,
so that the offerings we make on the feast day of
Saint Luke may bring us healing and give us glory.
Through Christ our Lord.  Amen.

Communion Antiphon
The Lord sent out disciples to proclaim throughout
the towns: The kingdom of God is at hand for you.
(See Lk 10:1,9)

Prayer after Communion
Grant, we pray, almighty God,
that what we have received from your holy altar
may sanctify us and make us strong in the faith
of the Gospel which Saint Luke proclaimed.
Through Christ our Lord.  Amen.
