 The Deacon's Homily for the Feast of Saint Mark the Evangelist
We say of Saint Mark that he was an “evangelist,” and an evangelist is a bearer of glad tidings, a herald of good news.

Tradition generally supposes that John Mark and Mark the Gospel-writer were the same person, but “Mark” was a very common name in the first century, and there might very well have been two or even more men of that name in the early Church.
