Quote/s of the Day – 25 April – Feast of St Mark Evangelist
The Gospel of Saint Mark was written in Greek around the 60s. He was Martyred in 68 and his Relics are preserved in the St Mark Cathedral of Venice. He is represented by a Winged Lion, one of the four living creatures of the Apocalypse, for he begins his Gospel by narrating St John the Baptist crying out in the wilderness, like a roaring lion.
“To what shall we compare the Kingdom of God, or what parable can we use for it? It is like a mustard seed …”
“And the wind ceased and there was a great calm. He said to them: “Why are you so afraid? Have you still no faith?”

“Whoever does not accept the Kingdom of God, like a little child, shall not enter it.”
“For the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve and to give His Life as a ransom for many …”

as so many sermons.
We do not use them, it is they who move us
