But from the unbelievers, the same words, like fireballs, cut down the thorns of darkness, completely uprooting them. Therefore by the whole world, Thou art highly regarded, for Thou, O Evangelist, wrote the Gospel of Jesus Christ, O All Holy and Blessed Luke: Intercede with Christ our God that He may grant Foregiveness of offences to those who with longing observe Thy Holy Memory.
All Blessed Luke, using Thy words like a hook, Thou drew to Christ those who like fish had sunk down into the depth of ignorance, up to Godly Knowledge, thus procuring for Thyself the worthy wage of honour, and they received undying endless life, O Apostle, Wise Evangelist, and the Author of Acts and the Actions of Grace. to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit

It made the faces of Gentiles beautiful, when they received Divine Knowledge. With Thy tongue Thou preached the Gospel. Thou wrote the Acts of Thy Fellow Apostles. Now, as Thou stand in the Presence of God, the Trinity, Intercede for our souls.
When the Grace of the Spirit was richly
poured on Thy head, it made Thee a Herald of Peace. O Blessed One, being thus Illumined by the Light of Grace, Thou were counted worthy to write down in Thine own hand the Gospel for the Lovers of God, like Theophilos. Wisely Thou recorded the Divine Holy Secrets. Thy tongue thus became the Pen of a swift-writing Scribe, O Luke,
