Our Easter observance is interrupted by a full-blown Feast Day, i.e. St. Mark. Tradition says he was the “secretary” to Peter and a traveling companion to Paul. The gospel he wrote is direct and to the point. It moves from one “immediately” to another. Things happen fast and furious. There is an urgency to it. No “air brushing” of the portraits of the apostles. LIke Mark, make me run to You, Lord, no matter what the cost.
