The Roman Catholic Church, according to the General Roman Calendar, celebrates the following in Tuesday, 2017-04-25:

  • St. Mark, Evangelist (Feast) 2017:


    1 Peter 5:5-14

    5Likewise you that are younger be subject to the elders. Clothe yourselves, all of you, with humility toward one another, for "God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble." 6Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that in due time he may exalt you. 7Cast all your anxieties on him, for he cares about you. 8Be sober, be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking some one to devour. 9Resist him, firm in your faith, knowing that the same experience of suffering is required of your brotherhood throughout the world. 10And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, establish, and strengthen you. 11To him be the dominion for ever and ever. Amen. 12By Silva'nus, a faithful brother as I regard him, I have written briefly to you, exhorting and declaring that this is the true grace of God;stand fast in it. 13She who is at Babylon, who is likewise chosen, sends you greetings;and so does my son Mark. 14Greet one another with the kiss of love. Peace to all of you that are in Christ.


    Psalms 89:2-3, 6-7, 16-17

    1I will sing of thy steadfast love, O LORD, for ever;with my mouth I will proclaim thy faithfulness to all generations. 2For thy steadfast love was established for ever, thy faithfulness is firm as the heavens. 5Let the heavens praise thy wonders, O LORD, thy faithfulness in the assembly of the holy ones! 6For who in the skies can be compared to the LORD? Who among the heavenly beings is like the LORD, 15Blessed are the people who know the festal shout, who walk, O LORD, in the light of thy countenance, 16who exult in thy name all the day, and extol thy righteousness.


    Mark 16:15-20

    15And he said to them, "Go into all the world and preach the gospel to the whole creation. 16He who believes and is baptized will be saved;but he who does not believe will be condemned. 17And these signs will accompany those who believe: in my name they will cast out demons;they will speak in new tongues;18they will pick up serpents, and if they drink any deadly thing, it will not hurt them;they will lay their hands on the sick, and they will recover." 19So then the Lord Jesus, after he had spoken to them, was taken up into heaven, and sat down at the right hand of God. 20And they went forth and preached everywhere, while the Lord worked with them and confirmed the message by the signs that attended it. Amen.


    Easter Time.


    Acts 4:32-37

    The community of believers was of one heart and mind,
    and no one claimed that any of his possessions was his own,
    but they had everything in common.
    With great power the Apostles bore witness
    to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus,
    and great favor was accorded them all.
    There was no needy person among them,
    for those who owned property or houses would sell them,
    bring the proceeds of the sale,
    and put them at the feet of the Apostles,
    and they were distributed to each according to need.

    Thus Joseph, also named by the Apostles Barnabas
    (which is translated Ason of encouragement"),
    a Levite, a Cypriot by birth,
    sold a piece of property that he owned,
    then brought the money and put it at the feet of the Apostles.


    Ps 93:1ab, 1cd-2, 5

    R. (1a) The Lord is king;he is robed in majesty.
    R. Alleluia.
    The LORD is king, in splendor robed;
    robed is the LORD and girt about with strength.
    R. The Lord is king;he is robed in majesty.
    R. Alleluia.
    And he has made the world firm,
    not to be moved.
    Your throne stands firm from of old;
    from everlasting you are, O LORD.
    R. The Lord is king;he is robed in majesty.
    R. Alleluia.
    Your decrees are worthy of trust indeed:
    holiness befits your house,
    O LORD, for length of days.
    R. The Lord is king;he is robed in majesty.
    R. Alleluia.


    Jn 3:7b-15

    Jesus said to Nicodemus:
    "'You must be born from above.'
    The wind blows where it wills, and you can hear the sound it makes,
    but you do not know where it comes from or where it goes;
    so it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit."
    Nicodemus answered and said to him,
    'How can this happen?"
    Jesus answered and said to him,
    "You are the teacher of Israel and you do not understand this?
    Amen, amen, I say to you,
    we speak of what we know and we testify to what we have seen,
    but you people do not accept our testimony.
    If I tell you about earthly things and you do not believe,
    how will you believe if I tell you about heavenly things?
    No one has gone up to heaven
    except the one who has come down from heaven, the Son of Man.
    And just as Moses lifted up the serpent in the desert,
    so must the Son of Man be lifted up,
    so that everyone who believes in him may have eternal life."
