About St. Matthew
Feast Day: September 21
St. Matthew was one of the twelve apostles of Jesus Christ. He also wrote the Gospel of Matthew.
He was from Galilee and was a tax collector before following Jesus. His fellow Jews would have despised him for working with their Roman occupiers. When Jesus called him, and the faithful Jews objected, Jesus said “Those who are well do not need a physician, but the sick do.”
He is the patron saint of accountants, bankers, and civil servants.
Saints are witnesses whom we venerate and who in thousands of different ways bring us to Jesus Christ, the only Lord and Mediator between God and humanity. They remind us that holiness can blossom even in our lives, however weak and marked by sin.Pope Francis
