Almighty God, who calledst Luke the Physician, whose praise is in the Gospel, to be an Evangelist, and Physician of the soul; May it please thee that, by the wholesome medicines of the doctrine delivered by him, all the diseases of our souls may be healed; through the merits of thy Son Jesus Christ our Lord.
BROTHER SAINTS (October 26th)
Their parents must have got stuck on page three of boy’s names, for they gave each of their four sons a name beginning with the letter “C”: Chad, Cedd, Cynebil and Celin. All four of these seventh century boys became priests but it is only really the first two whose reputation has survived up to our own day. St Chad and St Cedd are honoured in the calendar.
Chad was the abbot of several monasteries and a disciple of St Aidan. He ended his days as Bishop of Lichfield and is credited by St Bede for being responsible for evangelising large parts of what today we know as the midlands of England.
His brother Cedd was born into the same Northumbrian family and like his brother Chad he joined the monastery on Holy Island, or Lindisfarne. He founded an abbey at Lastingham in Yorkshire and he travelled into Anglia on missionary work, settling in Essex and becoming eventually Bishop of London. On a visit back home to his abbey at Lastingham he caught a plague and died along with one of his brothers, Cynebil, in 664.

WE ARE ALL PENCILS in the hand of a writing God, who is sending love letters to the world. (Mother Teresa)
