Saint for the Day April 25th.

St. Mark. (d.c.75)

He was a cousin of St. Barnabus.  He accompanied SS. Paul and Barnabus on their 1st missionary journey.  He was a disciple of St. Peter and reproduced his teaching in his gospel.  He followed Peter to Rome where he was described as his ‘disciple and interpreter’.   He is said to have founded the Church of Alexandria.  In the 9th century his body was translated to Venice and is enshrined in the magnificent cathedral dedicated to him. 

Quote for Today.

‘He had never acted in his life and couldn’t act the ‘pin’ in ‘Pinafore’.

(P. G. Wodehouse.)
