Feast of St. Mark, Evangelist (? – 80)

“Whoever wishes to come after me must deny himself,St Mark1 take up his cross and follow me. For whoever wishes to save his life, will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake and that of the gospel will save it.”

                            -Mark 8: 34-35 

For Reflection:           

What one cross is Jesus asking me to pick up today that is most repugnant to me? Am I willing to “lose my life” in this way for the sake of the gospel?
