Happy Feast Day
Saint Matthew the Apostle

Matthew, a former tax collector from Capernaum was called by Jesus to be His disciple. After his call, Matthew invited Jesus home for a feast. On seeing this the Scribes and the Pharisees criticized Jesus for eating with tax collectors and sinners. This prompted Jesus to answer, ” I came not to call the just, but sinners.” Matthew was the first Evangelist and one of the witnesses of the Resurrection and Ascension.
