Liturgy of Luke: prefaces to the readings

Here is my first draft of the prefaces for the readings for the Liturgy of the Gospel of Luke:

Preface to Moses, the prophets, or the Psalms:
All things must be fulfilled which were written in the law of Moses, and the prophets, and the Psalms concerning Christ, who opens our minds that we might understand the Scriptures. (Luke 24:44-45)

Preface to the Gospel reading:
To sit at Jesus' feet and hear his words is the one thing that is needful. (Luke 10:39,42)

Praise after the Gospel reading:
Many prophets and kings have desired to see what we have seen, and to hear what we have heard. (Luke 10:24)
