The International Order of St. Luke the Physician
Known by many as OSL, The International Order of St. Luke the Physician is an ecumenical organization dedicated to the
Christian healing ministry. We are clergy, health professionals and lay people who believe healing is an essential part of the teaching and practice of our Lord Jesus Christ. We are an interdenominational Christian order of faith, prayer and service, with members throughout the world.
JESU ESTO MIHI JESUS-DUX-LUX-REX-LEX
And roughly translated means, “O Jesus, be to me my Savior (Healer), my Leader, my Light, my King, and my Law.” According to tradition, this cross was found in the catacombs of Domitillain Rome during the second century. It is the prayer of a Roman officer, who as the story was told, lost his wife-his guide and inspiration. He felt the light of his life had been extinguished. Restless and distraught, he wandered this way and that. Then he heard the Glad Tidings of the Christian Gospel and found in the catacombs this prayer inscribed on the wall. He accepted Christ and made the prayer the Rule of his life. The light of Christ shone into his life with healing and integration. He lived a long and useful life thereafter.
Life’s greatest adventure awaits you when Jesus Christ becomes your Leader, Light, King, Law and Savior-Healer.

We will be using these foods to feed God's children in our Tuesday lunch, St. Andrew's soup kitchen, and introducing it into the recipes used during Crossover's skills-building cooking classes.
