 Our Description

Praying with Saint Matthew's Gospel is an excellent way to introduce friends, family members, parishioners, and those who are new to the faith to "the heart of all Scriptures." Grow in your love for God by following Christ daily through the Gospel of Matthew. This is a book to read at home and to study together with others, to pass along to those interested in the faith, and to share with those seeking to meet Christ in God's Word.

"In this Gospel we hear the persuasive voice of the publican Matthew, who, having become an Apostle, continues to proclaim God's saving mercy to us. I urge you to become familiar with the Bible, and to have it at hand so that it can be your compass pointing out the road to follow."
- Pope Benedict XVI

St. Matthew

Feast Day:
Roman Rite Calendar - 09/21


Patron Of: Accounts, Bankers, Bookkeepers, Stockbrokers, Tax Collectors

Profile
Son of Alphaeus, he lived at Capenaum on Lake Genesareth. He was a Roman tax collector, a position equated with collaboration with the enemy by those from whom he collected taxes. Jesus' contemporaries were surprised to see the Christ with a traitor, but Jesus explained that he had come "not to call the just, but sinners."

Matthew's Gospel is given pride of place in the canon of the New Testament, and was written to convince Jewish readers that their anticipated Messiah had come in the person of Jesus. He preached among the Jews for 15 years; his audiences may have included the Jewish enclave in Ethiopia, and places in the East.
