Feast of St. Mark

by FLL Editorial Team


但我們要留意福音也這樣說:「他們出去,到處宣講,主與他們合作,並以奇蹟相隨,證實所傳的道理」。(馬爾谷福音 16:20)天主施奇蹟是為協助我們宣講福音,我們要先對祂有足夠的信德,再出外宣講,祂自會在適當的時候與我們「合作」,讓他人看到連我們也未必意識到的奇蹟。

今天是聖馬爾谷的慶日,讓我們「往普天下去,向一切受造物宣傳福音」(馬爾谷福音 16:15)。

In today's gospel, Jesus said that "signs will accompany those who believe". We might ask: I have always believed, why haven't I seen any of the "dramatic" signs that Jesus spoke of?

We see that the gospel also says: "They went forth and preached everywhere, while the Lord worked with them and confirmed the word through accompanying signs." (Mark 16:20) God sends signs in order to aid our preaching of the Good News. We must first have enough faith and go out to preach, and at the time He sees fit, He would work with us. This way people will recognize the miracles that we ourselves aren't even conscious of.

Today is the feast of St. Mark, let us "Go into the whole world and proclaim the Gospel to every creature." (Mark 16:15)
