Not surprisingly, Saint Luke is the patron saint of physicians and doctors. Therefore, let us pray for all doctors and physicians and all those in the medical field. It is not an easy field to be in and they need God’s wisdom and guidance as they diagnose and treat their patients. More importantly, they need to have compassion and love for their patients. It really makes a difference, as you probably know if you’ve ever encountered a rude or nasty doctor!

So let us pray:

Most charming and saintly Physician, you were animated by the heavenly Spirit of love. In faithfully detailing the humanity of Jesus, you also showed his divinity and his genuine compassion for all human beings. Inspire our physicians with your professionalism and with the divine compassion for their patients. Enable them to cure the ills of both body and spirit that afflict so many in our day. Amen.”  —anonymous

Saint Luke, pray for us!
