St. Luke the Evangelist
Oct 18, 2021
Patron Saint of Doctors, Painters, and Sculptors
Luke was not a Jew but a Gentile, and thought to have been a Greco-Syrian, probably born in Antioch.
Though one of the four Gospel writers – known as the Evangelists – he was not one of Christ's Twelve Apostles.
Whether he converted to Christianity from Judaism or paganism is not certain.
