The Feast of St Mark the Apostle
We are immensely indebted to the great Apostle and Evangelist St. Mark for the following reasons:
1. St. Mark… Author of the Gospel
The first and shortest Gospel was written by St. Mark between 55-60AD. The message of St. Mark’s Gospel is captured in a single verse, “For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many” (Mark 10:45). Chapter by chapter the Gospel unfolds the dual focus of Christ’s life: service and sacrifice.
St. Mark portrays Christ as a Servant on the move, preaching, teaching and healing; moving towards the goal of offering Himself a sacrifice for all mankind. Directed towards the Romans, the Gospel of St. Mark omits the Aramaic words and uses Latin terms in their place (Mark 4:21; 6:27 and 15:15).

I gave Egypt for your ransom, Ethiopia and Seba in your place.
4 Since you were precious in My sight, You have been honoured,
And I have loved you;
Therefore I will give men for you,
And people for your life.
5 Fear not, for I am with you; ….
