Liturgical day: April 25th: Mark, evangelist

Gospel text (Mk 16,15-20): After speaking to them, the Lord Jesus was taken up into heaven (...). The Eleven went forth and preached everywhere, while the Lord worked with them Jesus appeared to the Eleven and said to them, «Go out to the whole world and proclaim the Good News to all creation. The one who believes and is baptized will be saved; the one who refuses to believe will be condemned. Signs like these will accompany those who have believed: in my Name they will cast out demons and speak new languages; they will pick up snakes and, if they drink anything poisonous, they will be unharmed. They will lay their hands on the sick and they will be healed».

So then, after speaking to them, the Lord Jesus was taken up into heaven and took his place at the right hand of God. The Eleven went forth and preached everywhere, while the Lord worked with them and confirmed the message by the signs that accompanied them.

Today we celebrate St. Mark while listening to the last words of his Gospel. After the Ascension of Jesus, the Apostles began to preach with impetus and resolution. The whole world! They evangelized with such force that they used every possible means: not only the word, but they also wrote down the life of Our Lord. Mark is one of four evangelists.

- And now? Well ... what has never been seen before! Internet! If the evangelists would have had access to Internet…!!! But somehow, they do. You can help them online. For you have evangeli.net! Cheer up!
