"Having ascended to the mountain of the virtues, O Apostle..."
St. Luke the Apostle and Evangelist (Source)
Having ascended to the mountain of the virtues, O Apostle, you conversed with the beloved, and like Moses you received the twin tables* written by God inscribed by the finger of the Spirit, blessed Luke, teacher of the inhabited world.
-Canon of St. Luke the Evangelist
*The Gospel According to St. Luke, and the Acts of the Apostles.
Through the prayers of our Holy Fathers, Lord Jesus Christ our God, have mercy on us and save us! Amen!
