April 25, 2016 (St. Mark)

“Go into the whole world and proclaim the Gospel…” Mark becomes the first to write down the “Good News,” or “Gospel.” He sets the tone for Matthew and Luke. John Paul II called for a new “evangelization.” We should use Mark as a guiding force in our efforts today. We must enlighten the uninformed; defend the persecuted; strengthen existing communities of believers; encourage those who have left the faith to return.
