Many Catholics who have St. Mark as a patron saint recite
prayers to St. Mark asking for his intercession in strengthening
their faith and helping them spread the Good News of
Jesus Christ. They wear a St. Mark medal or a St. Mark
pendant as a reminder to be evangelists just as St.
Mark the evangelist in their everyday lives. They use
St. Mark as an example of a true Christian even when
suffering the pain of martyrdom.

O Almighty God, who hast instructed thy holy Church
with the heavenly doctrines of thy Evangelist Saint

in the truth of thy holy Gospel; through Jesus Christ
our Lord. Amen.

came from heaven. All the nations of the earth, were
