Saint of the Week

September 21—MATTHEW, APOSTLE AND EVANGELIST.  According to tradition, Matthew, or Levi, was a tax collector called by Jesus to discipleship (Mt 9:9-13).  He put on a feast to celebrate his calling.  Tradition holds that Matthew preached in Judea and Ethiopia, where he was martyred.  The second century bishop Papias records that the text of Matthew’s Gospel draws on Aramaic traditions associated with the apostle’s name, portraying Christianity as consistent with and a continuation of the Jewish tradition.  Matthew is the patron saint of accountants, bankers, and customs officers.
