The Roman Catholic Church, according to the General Roman Calendar, celebrates the following in Friday, 2014-04-25:

  • St. Mark, Evangelist (Feast) 2014:


    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 4:1-12

    After the crippled man had been cured,
    while Peter and John were still speaking to the people,
    the priests, the captain of the temple guard,
    and the Sadducees confronted them,
    disturbed that they were teaching the people
    and proclaiming in Jesus the resurrection of the dead.
    They laid hands on Peter and John
    and put them in custody until the next day,
    since it was already evening.
    But many of those who heard the word came to believe
    and the number of men grew to about five thousand.

    On the next day, their leaders, elders, and scribes
    were assembled in Jerusalem, with Annas the high priest,
    Caiaphas, John, Alexander,
    and all who were of the high-priestly class.
    They brought them into their presence and questioned them,
    "By what power or by what name have you done this?"
    Then Peter, filled with the Holy Spirit, answered them,
    "Leaders of the people and elders:
    If we are being examined today
    about a good deed done to a cripple,
    namely, by what means he was saved,
    then all of you and all the people of Israel should know
    that it was in the name of Jesus Christ the Nazorean
    whom you crucified, whom God raised from the dead;
    in his name this man stands before you healed.
    He is the stone rejected by you, the builders,
    which has become the cornerstone.
    There is no salvation through anyone else,
    nor is there any other name under heaven
    given to the human race by which we are to be saved."


    Ps 118:1-2 and 4, 22-24, 25-27a

    R. (22) The stone rejected by the builders has become the cornerstone.
    R. Alleluia.
    Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good,
    for his mercy endures forever.
    Let the house of Israel say,
    "His mercy endures forever."
    Let those who fear the LORD say,
    "His mercy endures forever."
    R. The stone rejected by the builders has become the cornerstone.
    R. Alleluia.
    The stone which the builders rejected
    has become the cornerstone.
    By the LORD has this been done;
    it is wonderful in our eyes.
    This is the day the LORD has made;
    let us be glad and rejoice in it.
    R. The stone rejected by the builders has become the cornerstone.
    R. Alleluia.
    O LORD, grant salvation!
    O LORD, grant prosperity!
    Blessed is he who comes in the name of the LORD;
    we bless you from the house of the LORD.
    The LORD is God, and he has given us light.
    R. The stone rejected by the builders has become the cornerstone.
    R. Alleluia.


    Jn 21:1-14

    Jesus revealed himself again to his disciples at the Sea of Tiberias.
    He revealed himself in this way.
    Together were Simon Peter, Thomas called Didymus,
    Nathanael from Cana in Galilee,
    Zebedee's sons, and two others of his disciples.
    Simon Peter said to them, "I am going fishing."
    They said to him, "We also will come with you."
    So they went out and got into the boat,
    but that night they caught nothing.
    When it was already dawn, Jesus was standing on the shore;
    but the disciples did not realize that it was Jesus.
    Jesus said to them, "Children, have you caught anything to eat?"
    They answered him, "No."
    So he said to them, "Cast the net over the right side of the boat
    and you will find something."
    So they cast it, and were not able to pull it in
    because of the number of fish.
    So the disciple whom Jesus loved said to Peter, "It is the Lord."
    When Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord,
    he tucked in his garment, for he was lightly clad,
    and jumped into the sea.
    The other disciples came in the boat,
    for they were not far from shore, only about a hundred yards,
    dragging the net with the fish.
    When they climbed out on shore,
    they saw a charcoal fire with fish on it and bread.
    Jesus said to them, "Bring some of the fish you just caught."
    So Simon Peter went over and dragged the net ashore
    full of one hundred fifty-three large fish.
    Even though there were so many, the net was not torn.
    Jesus said to them, "Come, have breakfast."
    And none of the disciples dared to ask him, "Who are you?"
    because they realized it was the Lord.
    Jesus came over and took the bread and gave it to them,
    and in like manner the fish.
    This was now the third time Jesus was revealed to his disciples
    after being raised from the dead.
