The holy, glorious and all-laudable '''Apostle and Evangelist Mark''' is the author of the [[Gospel of Mark]], the companion of the [[Apostle Paul]] (as recorded in the [[Acts of the Apostles]]), and is numbered among the
Seventy [[Apostles]]. He is often referred to as '''John Mark''', and is the founder of the [[Church of Alexandria]], being regarded as its first pope. As a result, he is also particularly venerated by the [[Church of Alexandria (Coptic)|Coptic Church]] as its founder, as well.
