Gospel Reflection

Ralph Dobson ‘84

We are not surprised that Matthew follows Jesus because we know Matthew as one of the greatest apostles in the history of Christianity. But when we look deeper, we can see that when Jesus came across Matthew, Matthew was not yet an apostle—he was just an ordinary man trying to make a living as a tax collector. His life, however, was to take a turn that would shape his soul for eternity: Jesus came to him! Not only did Jesus speak to Matthew, but he beckoned to him: “Follow me.” 

Saint of the Day

St. Matthew, you were the reviled tax collector who became patron of those who work with finances--pray for us!
