Saint of the Day
St. Matthew the Apostle (1st c.) was a Jew who also went by the name of Levi. He was from Galilee and served in Capernaum as a tax collector for Herod Antipas before becoming a disciple of Jesus. It was in the home of St. Matthew that Jesus dined with the “sinners and tax collectors.” Under Jesus’ influence St. Matthew was led to repentance for the evil he had done as a tax-collector, a position despised by his fellow Jews. He repaid those he cheated four-fold, sold all his possessions, and followed Christ as one of the twelve Apostles. St. Matthew preached among the Jews for fifteen years following the Resurrection and Ascension of Jesus. He is the author of the Gospel that bears his name, which he wrote to convince the Jews that Jesus Christ was the Messiah promised to Israel. According to tradition, St. Matthew the Apostle brought the Gospel to Syria, Media, Persia, Parthia, and finished his preaching in Ethiopia with a martyr’s death. He is the patron of guards, bankers, accountants, security forces, and stock brokers. His feast day is September 21st. https://www.facebook.com/100076589315930/posts/pfbid02f34btCuUahUTnrmRdjwfXJQYdbsyZeAHfHRfmeTXYn7uH3yHYUD6nvuNeWvP1ua2l/
Blessed are those who remain faithful while they are treated by others and forgive them from their hearts. Blessed are those who look into the eyes of the abandoned and marginalized and show their closeness. Blessed are those who see God in every person and strive to discover others. Blessed are those who protect and care for our common home. Blessed are those who sacrifice their own comfort to help others. Blessed are those who pray and work for full fellowship among Christians.
