Feast Day of St. MarkEvangelist
On this beautiful feast day of St. Mark, Evangelist, we hear Jesus speak to His disciples, sending them forth to proclaim the gospel message. This “sending” takes place immediately preceeding His Ascension into Heaven.
”And he said to them, ‘Go into all the world and proclaim the good news to the whole creation. The one who believes and is baptized will be saved; but the one who does not believe will be condemned. And these signs will accompany those who believe: by using my name they will cast out demons; they will speak in new tongues; they will pick up snakes in their hands, and if they drink any deadly thing, it will not hurt them; they will lay their hands on the sick, and they will recover.’”
