Today is St. Mark the Evangelist’s Day. St. Mark was the author of the Gospel according to Mark. He played an important role in the early Church and was martyred.
Prayer of the Day
Almighty God, you have enriched your church with Mark’s proclamation of the gospel. Give us grace to believe firmly in the good news of salvation and to walk daily in accord with it, through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
