Our Catholic Practice for the year is reading the bible. Pope Francis encourages us to “Take It, Carry It with you and read it every day: it is Jesus Himself who is speaking to you…”
The Gospel of St. Mark moves quickly and you get a sense of the action in the story of Jesus’ life.
Right away. Come. Get up. Let’s Go. Now. Be still.
So, in the spirit of Mark’s Gospel: “Let’s Go !” “Let’s start reading !” Start with Chapter 1, read with an open heart asking the Holy Spirit to speak to you. A few verses may be read at a time but the important thing is to read it.
