The Jesus of Mark’s Gospel began his intense, passionate ministry with the words:
“The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God has come near; repent, and believe in the good news.”
The time is fulfilled…
- to hear the stories of women in Mark’s Gospel.
- to know of their courage, wisdom, service, and compassion.
- to know Jesus more completely through the eyes, ears, hearts and minds of these women.
Hear them and be inspired.
Hear them and know yourselves better.
Hear them and know Jesus- the human face of God in Mark’s telling- more completely.
Each story will be proclaimed “by heart.” Following a brief reflection by each woman, a similar contemporary story will be told.
Indeed, “the time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God has come near.”
