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. Praying with Saint Matthew's Gospel will be a great help in the mission of the New Evangelization as proclaimed by Pope John Paul II.
"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
