Feast of St. Luke the Evangelist and Exciting News!

Happy Feast of St. Luke the Evangelist (October 18)!

St. Luke is not only one of the Evangelists, he is also the patron of artists, so this is an excellent day to share exciting news with you regarding the latest volume in the Sacred Art SeriesThe Holy Gospels of St. Luke and St. John is now at the printer! It will be available shortly after Thanksgiving and will make a great Christmas gift.

This unique volume of the Gospels is designed for children (but is also suitable for adults) and is meant to inspire a daily habit of reading the scriptures by introducing children to the Gospels. To make the Gospels more accessible to children, it features beautiful sacred art from artists such as Caravaggio, Michelangelo, Titian, Duccio, Fra Angelico, and Giotto; it also presents the actual text of the Gospels in a story-by-story format with large print.

The The Holy Gospels of St. Luke and St. John will be available through Amazon.com. For the latest updates, follow this blog or "like" the Sacred Art Series Facebook page.

The below painting of St. Luke is by Vladimir Borovikovsky (c. 1804).
