Holy Apostle and Evangelist Mark + April 25


Come, with psalms and hymns let us all acclaim Mark, the preacher of heavenly mysteries and the herald of the Gospel; for he hath been shown to be a river of the spiritual Paradise, which watereth the fields of the soul with heavenly rains and maketh them fruitful for Christ God, Who, by his intercessions, granteth forgiveness and Great Mercy unto all.
