Matthew 9:9-13

It’s no surprise that Jesus dined with tax collectors. The Pharisees were scandalized because they were known to collaborate with the Roman officials and to exhort more than was owed the government. And yet, Jesus called one of them, Matthew, to follow him.

St. Matthew, turning from collecting taxes to being a disciple of Jesus Christ offers such hope for those of us who strive to turn away from our foolish ways. Pray for us.
