Jesus Christ, our Good News (Mk 1:1)
Praise be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ for this feast day of St. Mark. Lord, as we remember St. Mark, grant us also a deeper knowledge and love for Jesus, so that, like St. Mark, we may able also to share Jesus by means of our deeds. Constantly grant us the spirit of fortitude and wisdom to speak and fight for what is true and right with love. Grant this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
St. Mark, evangelist, pray for us.
