5:00 p.m. Bach Society Houston Presents Vespers Followed by Oktoberfest

This Sunday we celebrate the Day of Saint Luke the Physician, Evangelist. The readings for this commemoration are Isaiah 35:5-8; Psalm 124; 2 Timothy 4:5-11; Saint Luke 1:1-4; 24:44-53.

Luke is the author of the Gospel that bears his name and of the Acts of the Apostles. Because he uses a great deal of technical First Century medical terms, he has always been considered to be a physician.
