Salute to Saint Luke
there is something special about all the gospels, and I think I love them each in their own unique way - my favorite aspect of this evangelist is that he has so much unique material - of the 3 synoptic gospels his is the longest and approximately 40+ percent of it is not found in Mark or Matthew. Luke has about a number of parables and miracles not found in the other two, plus his stories surrounding the birth of Christ are exquisite. Luke, bless him, gives "the ladies" and other social outcasts their due. His slant on the gospel plus his Acts of the Apostles gives him a special place in my heart. There's a lot of joy of life in Luke's works.
And a very happy birthday today too to my friend Kathy P.!
