mark

 


The winged lion stands for St. Mark. The Gospel according to St. Mark opens with a description of St. John the Baptist, who speaks of himself as the voice of one crying int he wilderness. That this should be associated with the voice of a lion is quite natural. St. Mark also emphasizes the Resurrection of Christ. The resurrection declares the ability of Christ to overcome all His enemies, which reminds one of the lion, who is the king of beasts.
