SAINT MARK, EVANGELIST – FEAST: 25 APRIL

25 Apr

John Mark was a cousin of Saint Barnabas. He accompanied Saint Paul the Apostles on his first missionary journey and later followed him to Rome. He was a disciple of Saint Peter and reproduced his teaching in his Gospel. He is said to have founded the Church of Alexandria.

Prayer: Heavenly Father, You chose out the evangelist Saint Mark and ennobled him with grace to preach the Gospel. Let his teaching so improve our lives that we may walk faithfully in the footsteps of Christ. We make our prayer in the most holy name of our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, God, for ever and ever. Amen.
