REFLECTION FOR ST LUKE’S DAY

Luke 1:1–4
Dedication to Theophilus
[1] Inasmuch as many have undertaken to compile a narrative of the things that have been accomplished among us, [2] just as those who from the beginning were eyewitnesses and ministers of the word have delivered them to us, [3] it seemed good to me also, having followed all things closely for some time past, to write an orderly account for you, most excellent Theophilus, [4] that you may have certainty concerning the things you have been taught. (ESV)

THE COLLECT.   ALMIGHTY GOD, WHO CALLEDST LUKE THE PHYSICIAN, WHOSE PRAISE IS IN THE GOSPEL, TO BE AN EVANGELIST, AND PHYSICIAN OF THE SOUL: MAY IT PLEASE THEE THAT, BY THE WHOLESOME MEDICINES OF THE DOCTRINE DELIVERED BY HIM, ALL THE DISEASES OF OUR SOULS MAY BE HEALED; THROUGH THE MERITS OF THY SON JESUS CHRIST OUR LORD. AMEN
