‘Love God; and love each other.’ – Jesus
God’s dream for the world is that we live in just peace and tender harmony, fostering a global community in which each members’ rights and responsibilities are affirmed and fulfilled. This community is marked by ‘love,’ in thought, word, and deed. For Christians, there’s nothing esoteric about this ‘love’ – it is visible, tangible, measureable – which means, for the Church, it’s also something we can, and do, practice together.
Through prayer, study, and service, Saint Mark’s members and friends are encouraged to practice a ‘rule of life’ dedicated to falling in love with God and with each other. Shaped by the three-fold Benedictine spiritual framework of stability, obedience, and conversion of life, we seek ‘solid ground’ in a changing and turbulent world, we seek ‘guidance’ amidst myriad concerns and distractions, and we seek ‘growth and maturity’ as disciples of Jesus.
