Almighty God, which hast instructed thy holy Church with the heavenly doctrine of thy Evangelist Saint Mark:
Grant us grace, that we be not like children carried away with every blast of vain doctrine,
but firmly to be established in the truth of thy holy Gospel,
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
