The Kingdom is at hand


Prayer over the gifts (Liturgy – Oct 18, 2012)
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.

St Luke
Evangelist, Martyr
Fellow-worker of St Paul
Patron:  Artists, Physicians and Surgeons
Feast Day – October 18

St Luke, thank you for enlivening our love of Jesus as Friend
through the holy Gospel!

This is a Friend who will not terrify you, who will not abandon you.
Hope in Him, and Heaven is yours! ~ St Joseph Cafasso

St Luke, ora pro nobis!
