(Lukas, Lucius, Lucias) [1st Century], author of one of the four Gospels and the Acts of the Apostles, was a gentile convert to Christianity and sometime companion during the missionary journeys of St. Paul, who called him both friend and physician. By popular tradition, the portrait of St. Mary in a chapel of St. Mary Major, Rome, is by his hand. Because of the sensitive and sympathetic treatment of women in his writings, he may be considered patron of those who advance the cause of women. His symbol is the winged bull, one of the four beasts of Ezekial. He is also patron of brewers, butchers, glassworkers, notaries, artists, doctors and surgeons. His feast is October 18.
