Byzantine Hand Painted Icon of Luke the Apostle and Evangelist.
The Evangelist Luke was born in Antioch, Syria and was of Greek origin. He was apprenticed next to the Apostle Paul and together they reached Rome to preach the Gospel. He went on alone to distant places to teach the Word of God and wrote the Gospel of Luke and the Acts of the Apostles.
He also excelled in painting as the first icons of the Virgin Mary with Jesus Christ and those of the Apostles Peter and Paul are attributed to Evangelist Luke.
As for his death, the information is confused since some sources state that he died a martyr's death while others record that he died peacefully.
O Holy Apostle and Evangelist Luke, intercede to our merciful God, that He may grant our souls forgiveness of sins.
As a disciple of the Word of God, with Paul you illuminated all the earth and dispelled the gloom in writing Christ's divine Gospel.
