We begin our prayer in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.
Tomorrow is the Feast of St. Mark the Evangelist
St. Mark wrote the gospel that bears his name. His gospel is shorter than the others and emphasizes Jesus as a teacher and a person of action.
The word 'gospel' means 'good news'.
St. Mark shares the Good News that God loved the world so much God gave us Jesus. This is what we are called to share to all of creation – all of the world.
As we develop our life of faith, we must always remember to pray to God.
This is how Jesus taught us to pray:
'Pray then in this way:
Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name.
Your kingdom come.
Your will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts,
as we also have forgiven our debtors.
And do not bring us to the time of trial,
but rescue us from the evil one.
We close by praying:
Glory be to the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.
As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall by, world without end.
