This triptych's central image is of St. Luke, Archbishop of Simferopol and Crimea. A pioneering and world-famous surgeon, a confessor under torture, a bishop and a miracle-worker, St. Luke is truly one of the most amazing saints who suffered at the hands of the Soviets. Outspoken regarding his faith, he was exiled and tortured multiple times, yet the authorities could not deny his exceptional medical skills. He was appointed as a chief surgeon overseeing the treatment of injured soldiers during WWII, and received the Stalin award for his groundbreaking surgical work. Through the grace and boldness he has obtained before the throne of the Lord, he continues to work miracles and healings even after death, for those have undoubting recourse to his intercessions.
