My Morning

I have a wonderful neighbor named Buck.

Buck’s mother lives next door to him and behind me.

Buck called me a few moments ago.

I knew what he wanted.

He’s called me for this reason before.

Occasionally his mother knocks the phone off the hook

Buck gets worried and asks me to go check on her.

There is always a bit of dread on my part.

But I knock and she answers with a big smile and says,

“I’ll call my son.”

Only Luke Is With Me

Today we celebrate the feast day of St. Luke the Evangelist. He is called an evangelist because he wrote the third of the four New Testament Gospels. St. Luke also wrote the Book of the Acts of the Apostles, which comes just after the Gospels in the New Testament. Taken together, St. Luke’s Gospel and Acts form a continuous story of the birth of Christianity from the announcement of the birth of John the Baptist, to St. Paul’s imprisonment in Rome, in about 60 A.D.

St. Paul said, “Only Luke is with me”.  What’s the significance of this and what does he mean? … click here.
