April 25, 2014 (Feast of St. Mark)

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.

  1. Embarrassing moments! Who would know about the young man whom they tried to capture in the Garden of Olives? Only Mark recounts that there was a young man that they tried to grab, and ended up with a sheet while he ran off naked.
