Mad props to St. Luke for cooperating with the Holy Spirit to write such a great Gospel! The Gospel according to Luke is Mary’s Gospel and the Gospel of Divine Mercy. Luke describes, with so much attention to detail, the Joyful Mysteries of the rosary–from the Annunucian to the finding in the temple. The Prodigal Son and the Good Samaritan are two of my favorite parables that came forth from the Sacred Heart of Jesus. All this can only be found in Luke’s Gospel.
Luke was a Greek-speaking physician who accompanied St. Paul on his mission journeys and recorded the adventures in the Acts of the Apostles. In all probability St. Luke was baptized by St. Paul. What must it have been to hear St. Paul say “Luke, I am your father…in the faith”!
St. Luke must have sat down with Our Lady to get material that only she would be able to give. “She pondered these things in her heart” after all. St. Luke is said to have painted a portrait of her. He sure painted her beautifully in the Gospel!
Thanks St. Luke!
