Mark the Evangelist

25 April

Almighty God,

who enlightened your holy Church

through the inspired witness of your evangelist Saint Mark:

grant that we, being firmly grounded

in the truth of the gospel,

may be faithful to its teaching both in word and deed;

through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,

who is alive and reigns with you,

in the unity of the Holy Spirit,

one God, now and for ever.
