Ukufika kukaMark nenkosikazi yakhe uLee, babakhwankqiswa kwangoko bonke abatsha izibini kunye nobubele bazo. Enkonzweni, umculo wawumnandi kwaye ucocekile; intshumayelo, ethanjisiweyo, efanelekileyo, kwaye engene nzulu kwiLizwi likaThixo. Emva kwenkonzo, baphinda babuzwa zizibini ezininzi. “Sifuna ukumema kwisifundo sethu seBhayibhile kusasa ngomso… ngolwesibini, sinezibini ebusuku… ngolwesiThathu, sinomdlalo webhasikithi wosapho kwindawo yokuzivocavoca… NgoLwesine yindumiso yethu kunye nonqulo ngokuhlwa… ngolwesihlanu ngolwesi… . " Njengoko wayephulaphule, uMarko waqonda ukuba oku kuyinyani bekunjalo Uluntu lobuKristu, hayi ngegama nje-hayi ngeyure enye ngeCawa.

Emva kokubuyela kwabo emotweni, uMark wayehlala apho ethe cwaka. "Siyayifuna le nto," watsho kumkakhe. "Into yokuqala eyenziwa liCawe yokuqala yayiyindawo yoluntu kodwa ipherishi yethu iyiyo nantoni na. Kwaye ewe, sinomthendeleko ... kodwa asingoMoya nje kuphela kodwa zentlalo izidalwa. Sifuna nomzimba kaKristu ekuhlaleni! Ngapha koko, akazange atsho uYesu, 'Baphi na ababini okanye abathathu bahlanganisene eGameni lam, ndikhona mna phakathi kwabo? Kwaye 'Niya kwazi njani ke ukuba abafundi bam, ukuba nithe nathandana? Uhlawulwe ziintlungu ezinzulu kunye nokudideka, uMark wongeze wathi: "Mhlawumbi kufanele siqale ukuza apha ... siye eMass ngolunye usuku."

Ngobo busuku xa wayexubha amazinyo, ehlola ngengqondo yakhe ngeziganeko zangosuku, uMark ngequbuliso weva ilizwi elikhethekileyo entliziyweni yakhe:

Hlala, kwaye ukhanye kubazalwana bakho…

Wema, wajonga, wamamela. Ilizwi liphindaphinda:

Hlala, kwaye ukhanye kubazalwana bakho…

Kwiiveki ezimbini emva koko, uMark wayehleli kwisitulo esibukele IKhaya laseRoma elimnandi—Ubungqina buka Gqirha Scott Hahn malunga nendlela awazimisela ngayo ukutshabalalisa imfundiso yama Katolika ... kodwa egqiba ekubeni ngumKatolika. Ukuphela kwevidiyo, iinyembezi zazehlela ebusweni bukaMark kwaye wayesazi ukuba, naye, ekhaya. Kwisithuba seminyaka eliqela elandelayo, uMark wazibethelela kwi-apologetics yamaKatolika, ethandana kwakhona noMtshakazi ka-Kristu, ngelixa ethobela elinye igama eliza emva konyaka: "Umculo ngumnyango wokwenza ivangeli." Emva koko yaqala inkonzo kaMarko yomculo.

Ngexesha loSuku loLutsha lweHlabathi eToronto, eCanada ngonyaka ka-2002, apho wayecula khona uMark, uPopu St John Paul II wabizela ulutsha kwinkonzo yesiprofetho:

Phantse iminyaka emine kamva, uMarko wayenolangazelelo olunzulu lokuthandaza phambi kweSakramente elisikelelekileyo. Apho, wayenamava amakhulu apho iNkosi yammema ngokobuqu ukuba athathe lo mnxeba ukuze abe "ngumlindi" (jonga Ibizelwe eludongeni). Phantsi kwesandla somlawuli wokomoya, uMarko wabhala UKUQINISA NGOKUGQIBELA wazisa ngebhlog yakhe, ILizwi ngoku, eqhubeka nanamhlanje ukuba "ibe kukukhanya" ezintlangeni kula maxesha obumnyama. UMark ukwangu-a umbhali wengoma kunye albhamu asixhenxe igama lakhe, kunye nomrhumo weSt. John Paul II,Ingoma yeKarol. " UMark nenkosikazi yakhe banabantwana abasibhozo kwaye bahlala eCanada.
