Sep. 21, 2016 (Feast of St. Matthew)

Sep. 21 is the Feast Of St. Matthew the tax collector and author of the Gospel that bears his name. Matthew must have relived Jesus’ call to follow Him over and over again. His Gospel was used often by the early Church as it has verses dealing with “the Church.” It was intended for a mostly Jewish Christian audience. Next Liturgical Year it will be the main Gospel we hear at Sunday mass.
