Luke will feature greatly in the next weeks. Christmas Eve or Morning focuses on Luke, as does the Sunday after Christmas. After that, there's no Luke until next Advent. 3 sermons in a row on Luke 1 and 2 might warrant some planning ahead to avoid running out of material. Though, if that happens, there are always other texts to rely on.

- The other occurence is Advent 4, Year C; appropriate placement given that it is the year of Luke.
- The Magnificat, as sung by Mary. Perhaps most appropriately sung after the reading of the Gospel, but that is a judgment call.
