Troparion of St. Mark, Tone 3
O holy Apostle and Evangelist Mark, intercede with the merciful God, to grant our souls forgiveness of sins.
Kontakion of St. Mark, Tone 2
When thou hadst received the Spirit’s grace from Heaven’s heights, thou rentest apart the webs of philosophers; and on catching all of the nations in thy net, O all-lauded Mark, thou didst offer them to thy Lord, by preaching the Gospel of divine renown.
