|St. Mark the Evangelist|
A Little-Known Fact About St. Mark the Evangelist
We learn from Acts 12:12 that a very early Christian named Mary, who was very likely Mark's mother, allowed her house to be used for prayer and worship. When Peter was miraculously freed from prison by an angel, it was to Mark's mother's house that he went.
