Daily homily thoughts, 10/18

Today we celebrate the feast day of St. Luke. He was a doctor, of course, and he wrote the Gospel of Luke and the Acts of the Apostles. Perhaps because of his intelligence, his is the most polished of all the gospels, and his mind might also be what compelled him to write the only real “history” book we have in the bible (the Acts).  His symbol is the ox, because he his gospel pays special attention to the sacrifice Christ made for us and the life of sacrifice we must offer back to him.
