SAINT OF THE DAY
St. Mark the Evangelist (1st c.) was a disciple of Jesus and the author of the Gospel that bears his name. It is believed that he was native to Libya in North Africa, later settling in Cana of Galilee not far from Jerusalem. There is some evidence, though uncertain, that he may have been a Jewish priest that converted to Christianity, and that he may have been with Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane. He was a close disciple of the Apostle St. Peter, the first pope, and therefore his Gospel is addressed to Gentile converts to the Christian faith living in Rome. Most of what we know about his life and missionary activity in building up the Church is recorded in the New Testament. St. Mark is known as the patron of lawyers and prisoners. His feast day is April 25.
