St. Luke was an early Christian convert, a Gentile, and is referred to as “the beloved physician.”
Church tradition says that Luke was born in Antioch in Syria and became a martyr for Christ. In the 2nd century the authorship of the third Gospel was ascribed to Luke. And the Acts of the Apostles are often attributed to Luke.
His feast day is celebrated on 18 October and his sign is a winged ox.
