The Roman Catholic Church, according to the General Roman Calendar, celebrates the following in Thursday, 2019-04-25:

  • St. Mark, Evangelist (Feast) 2019:


    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 3:11-26

    As the crippled man who had been cured clung to Peter and John,
    all the people hurried in amazement toward them
    in the portico called "Solomon's Portico."
    When Peter saw this, he addressed the people,
    "You children of Israel, why are you amazed at this,
    and why do you look so intently at us
    as if we had made him walk by our own power or piety?
    The God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob,
    the God of our fathers, has glorified his servant Jesus
    whom you handed over and denied in Pilate's presence,
    when he had decided to release him.
    You denied the Holy and Righteous One
    and asked that a murderer be released to you.
    The author of life you put to death,
    but God raised him from the dead;of this we are witnesses.
    And by faith in his name,
    this man, whom you see and know, his name has made strong,
    and the faith that comes through it
    has given him this perfect health,
    in the presence of all of you.
    Now I know, brothers and sisters,
    that you acted out of ignorance, just as your leaders did;
    but God has thus brought to fulfillment
    what he had announced beforehand
    through the mouth of all the prophets,
    that his Christ would suffer.
    Repent, therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be wiped away,
    and that the Lord may grant you times of refreshment
    and send you the Christ already appointed for you, Jesus,
    whom heaven must receive until the times of universal restoration
    of which God spoke through the mouth
    of his holy prophets from of old.
    For Moses said:

    A prophet like me will the Lord, your God, raise up for you
    from among your own kin;
    to him you shall listen in all that he may say to you.
    Everyone who does not listen to that prophet
    will be cut off from the people.

    "Moreover, all the prophets who spoke,
    from Samuel and those afterwards, also announced these days.
    You are the children of the prophets
    and of the covenant that God made with your ancestors
    when he said to Abraham,
    In your offspring all the families of the earth shall be blessed.
    For you first, God raised up his servant and sent him to bless you
    by turning each of you from your evil ways."


    Ps 8:2ab and 5, 6-7, 8-9

    R. (2ab) O Lord, our God, how wonderful your name in all the earth!
    R. Alleluia.
    O LORD, our Lord,
    how glorious is your name over all the earth!
    What is man that you should be mindful of him,
    or the son of man that you should care for him?
    R. O Lord, our God, how wonderful your name in all the earth!
    R. Alleluia.
    You have made him little less than the angels,
    and crowned him with glory and honor.
    You have given him rule over the works of your hands,
    putting all things under his feet.
    R. O Lord, our God, how wonderful your name in all the earth!
    R. Alleluia.
    All sheep and oxen,
    yes, and the beasts of the field,
    The birds of the air, the fishes of the sea,
    and whatever swims the paths of the seas.
    R. O Lord, our God, how wonderful your name in all the earth!
    R. Alleluia.


    Lk 24:35-48

    The disciples of Jesus recounted what had taken place along the way,
    and how they had come to recognize him in the breaking of bread.

    While they were still speaking about this,
    he stood in their midst and said to them,
    "Peace be with you."
    But they were startled and terrified
    and thought that they were seeing a ghost.
    Then he said to them, "Why are you troubled?
    And why do questions arise in your hearts?
    Look at my hands and my feet, that it is I myself.
    Touch me and see, because a ghost does not have flesh and bones
    as you can see I have."
    And as he said this,
    he showed them his hands and his feet.
    While they were still incredulous for joy and were amazed,
    he asked them, "Have you anything here to eat?"
    They gave him a piece of baked fish;
    he took it and ate it in front of them.

    He said to them,
    "These are my words that I spoke to you while I was still with you,
    that everything written about me in the law of Moses
    and in the prophets and psalms must be fulfilled."
    Then he opened their minds to understand the Scriptures.
    And he said to them,
    "Thus it is written that the Christ would suffer
    and rise from the dead on the third day
    and that repentance, for the forgiveness of sins,
    would be preached in his name
    to all the nations, beginning from Jerusalem.
    You are witnesses of these things."
