Pagan parents, possibly born a slave, and one of the earliest converts. Physician. Legend has that he was also a painter who may have done portraits of Jesus and Mary, but none have ever been correctly attributed to him; this story, and the inspiration his Gospel has always given artists, led to his patronage of them. Traveled with Saint Paul and evangelized Greece and Rome with him, being there for the shipwreck and other perils of the voyage to Rome. Wrote the Gospel According to Luke, much of which was based on the teachings and writings of Paul, and his own experiences. Wrote a history of the early Church in the Acts of the Apostles. Martyr.
Through Jesus Christ's Precious, Pure and Holy name I pray. - Amen
