Dear All,

I think we read this story a couple of times each year, perhaps in its different versions in the Gospels. Does anyone know if we read all three versions of it (in Matthew, Mark, and Luke)? Can anyone tell me when we read it?

Thanks,

Caleb

Caleb,

Matthew on the 5th Sunday after Pentecost, Luke on the 23rd Sunday.


Peace,

On the Thursday during the 14th Week after Pentecost, the account from the Gospel according to Mark (5:1-20) is read.

A couple of decades ago the American Bible Society produced an MTV-style video (VHS) of the Mark passage...very well done.

Thomas, Fathers Richard and John,

Thanks to all of you for your replies.

For what it's worth, here's a little reflection on the Gospel story that I wrote for Covenant, a (mostly) Anglo-Catholic blog where I am a contributor.
