Friends of the Rosary,

Today is the Feast of St. Mark, the Evangelist, the author of the second Gospel, a Jewish Christian baptized and instructed by St. Peter.

The Gospel of Mark, written in 50 A.D. for Roman Gentile converts, records St. Peter’s preaching about Our Lord. It rarely quotes the Old Testament and carefully explains Jewish customs, rites, and words. It excels in portraying Christ’s and His hearers’ emotions and affections.

St. Mark accompanied St. Paul and his cousin St. Barnabas in the evangelization of Cyprus before he became the companion and secretary of St. Peter in Rome about the year 42 A.D.

St. Mark preached in Egypt, especially in Alexandria, and was martyred there.

Ave Maria!
Jesus, I Trust In You!
St. Mark, Pray for Us!

To Jesus through Mary!

Here am I, Lord; I come to do your will!
