Attention Please - a new blogging plan

Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday I will discuss a portion of the Marcan Gospel (to be followed eventually by Luke-Acts). I will follow the Gospel chapter by chapter, thus in a systematic way. This means that I will not be commenting on liturgical texts or feasts of the Church. Because others do commenting so successfully on this blog site, I wish to offer something more systematic and at the same time show why and how Mark’s Gospel was put together. Will following the Gospel from beginning to end aid preaching and prayer? I hope so, because I am convinced that understanding the goal of the Gospel and the stories that Mark chose to reach that goal - that all this will help everyone understand any particular passage or story of that life. I hope you will find this treatment of Mark’s Gospel useful; let us see what we can accomplish. Monday, August 25, will be the first day in which I will begin the discussion of Mark’s Gospel. Thank you, John Kilgallen, S.J.

This is an interesting conincidence. I am a Benedictine (Camaldolese Bendectine) Oblate. Recently I completed the Gospel of Matthew and started the Gospel of Mark for my Lectio. Theologian David Tracy has written some interesting things about the Gospel of Mark. I am looking forward to this. Michael from San Francisco, CA
