St Luke Medal, Patron of Artists, Surgeons, Physicians
Luke the Evangelist is one of the Four Evangelists - the four authors of the Gospels in the new testament. St Luke has many patronages, including artists, physicians and surgeons.
Luke had a special connection with the women in Jesus' life, especially Mary. It is in Luke's gospel that we hear the story of the Annunciation, Mary's visit to Elizabeth including the Magnificat, the Presentation, and the story of Jesus' disappearance in Jerusalem. It is Luke that we have to thank for the Scriptural parts of the Hail Mary: "Hail Mary full of grace" spoken at the Annunciation and "Blessed are you and blessed is the fruit of your womb Jesus" spoken by her cousin Elizabeth.
