 St. Luke, Patron of Physicians

Most charming and saintly Physician, you were animated by the heavenly Spirit of love. In faithfully detailing the humanity of Jesus, you also showed his divinity and his genuine compassion for all human beings. Inspire our physicians with your professionalism and with the divine compassion for their patients. Enable them to cure the ills of both body and spirit that afflict so many in our day. Amen.

Medicine and Faith

Just as God is the Author and Creator of our Faith, He is also Author and Creator of Life. As stated in John Paul II's encyclical letter Faith and Reason, "there can never be a true divergence between faith and reason." Similarly we should not expect a contradiction between being a good physician and being a good Catholic. Good medical care for a patient is always in harmony with Catholic medical ethics. Different ethical dilemmas in medicine today must be illuminated with the light of Faith. The Catholic Faith is truly a help in the practice of medicine.
