Today is the Feast of St. Matthew, tax collector turned apostle of Christ. In his Gospel, we read: “…’Why does your teacher eat with tax collectors and sinners?’ But when he heard it, he said, ‘Those who are well have no need of a physician, but the sick.’” (Matthew 9:11-12)

St. Matthew, pray for us, that we may have the courage to answer God’s call, leave all behind, and follow Him!
