St. Luke the Evangelist

St. Luke was one of the four evangelists who wrote the Gospels in the Bible. He was a doctor and a companion of St. Paul, travelling across the Mediterranean region to preach about Jesus. St. Luke is traditionally believed to have painted the first icons, or paintings, of Jesus and Mary. This is why he is the patron saint of artists, as well as doctors! Many hospitals are named after St. Luke. His feast day is on 18 October.

St. Teresa of Avila

St. Teresa of Avila (1515 - 1582) was a Spanish Carmelite Nun. She was a very smart, beautiful and gifted woman who gave her life entirely to God. She was a mystic, or a person who experienced God supernaturally. When she joined the Carmelite Order, the nuns there were not praying much. She reformed the Order, turning it into a strict house of unceasing prayer. The Church continues to benefit from the prayers of the Carmelites today. St. Teresa's feast day is on 15 October.

Our Lady of Fatima (or Our Lady of the Rosary)

Our Lady of Fatima (or Our Lady of the Rosary)
In 1917, Mother Mary appeared to three young children in Fatima, a small village in Portugal. Her first appearance was on May 13 and she asked them to pray the Rosary daily for the conversion of sinners. Her last appearance was on October 13 and she identified herself as ‘Our Lady of the Rosary’ and a great miracle happened when the sun danced before thousands of people!
