25th April St. Mark the Evangelist

St. Mark looks like he had a bad nights sleep or two here, but it was very difficult to find a picture that is in the commons that didn't have a lion that looked a little on the spooky side (for children) and like it wanted to eat you for dinner.  The Lindisfarne Gospels are absolutely fascinating and worth looking at with your children.  You can see some pages online here.  They don't enlarge as much as I would like but still good.
