Today is the feast day of St. Mark, who wrote the second gospel in the New Testament. He was a follower of Peter and Paul and would have listened to them telling him of Jesus’ words and deeds. He wrote down these reflections into the gospel we read to learn more about Jesus. Let us give thanks to St. Mark for writing down the words that inspire us today.
Thank you for the writers of the gospel
who share Jesus’ words and experiences with us.
We thank you for the life of St. Mark who wrote about the life of Jesus.
These scriptures help us grow in our relationship with you.
Help us to remember to read the scriptures,
as they provide us ways to make sense of our world
and how to be better people.
Through Christ our Lord,
South Entrance - Mrs. McLeod
