Sunday Sermon, April 22 -- The Life and Gospel of St Mark (Father Ryan Erlenbush, Corpus Christi Parish)

This week, we celebrate the feast of St Mark the Evangelist (April 25). In the past few years, we have preached about the other three Evangelists, and now we turn to st Mark.

St Mark was a Jewish priest, converted by St Peter. He wrote his Gospel in Rome, and includes more details than any of the other Gospels (even though it is the shortest). St Mark also includes many Aramaic words and phrases which Jesus spoke, even giving us the particular inflection of our Lord's speech. Through St Mark, we are able to hear the voice of the Good Shepherd.
