On the Feast of St. Mark

From the BCP:
Almighty God, by the hand of Mark the evangelist you have given to your Church the Gospel of Jesus Christ the Son of God: We thank you for this witness, and pray that we may be firmly grounded in its truth; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

St. Mark; A man who started his career as the kid who ran away naked at Christ's arrest in the garden, to being a point of contention between St. Paul & Barnabas, to finally being "useful" to St. Paul in his final Epistle.
