The Lord Is My Chef Recipe for the Soul by Fr. Nicanor F. Lalog II Monday, Feast of St. Mark, Evangelist, 25 April 2022 1 Peter 5:5-14 ><]]]]'> + <'[[[[>< Mark 16:15-20
What a wonderful grace, O God our Father on this Easter Season that we celebrate the feast of St. Mark, the first evangelist who reminds us all of writing our own gospel account too!
And for us to write our own gospel account, St. Mark reminds us beautifully of something so essential with Easter: speaking the new languages of love and humility in Jesus Christ our Risen Lord not only in words but most especially in deeds.
Jesus appeared to the Eleven and said to them: “Go into the whole world and proclaim the gospel to every creature. These signs will accompany those who believe: in my name they will drive out demons, they will speak new languages….”Mark 16:15, 17
While it is truly a gift to speak different languages, but what is most wonderful in proclaiming your gospel Lord Jesus is to witness to other people your love and kindness, your mercy and compassion, your gentleness and humility that is always the same in every language spoken by everyone. Amen.
