St. Matthew Comments

St. Matthew, one of the twelve Apostles, is the author of the first Gospel. This has been the constant tradition of the Church and is confirmed by the Gospel itself. He was the son of Alpheus and was called to be an Apostle while sitting in the tax collectors place at Capernaum. Before his conversion he was a publican, i.e., a tax collector by profession. He is to be identified with the "Levi" of Mark and Luke. His apostolic activity was at ... Continue Reading

    Dear St. Matthew,
    As a Security Officer I need you to intercede for me with Our Lord. I am having a difficult time right now. I am homeless and in financial trouble. Please go to our Lord on my behalf and ask him to help me.

    Thank you in advance for prayers answered.

    Dear St. Matthew, hear my prayer and place this petition on behalf of our agency. Bless us the thirty one so that we can continue to serve the poor, render aid whenever possible, feed the hungry, shelter the homeless, clothe the needy, heal the sick. Provide for us so we do not have the worries of tomorrow and protect us so that we are able to continue HIS work. Stay with us so that we are in continual reminder of God's grace and that we remain committed to our hearts endeavor. In HIS glorious name, we thank you! Amen.

    Since my name is Matthew and I am a tax collector. I have always felt a special devotion to Saint Matthew. As many do, I wish that there was more written about him, and what he did after writing his Gospel. Although not listed on the website here, I know for a fact that he is the patron saint of tax collectors (and accountants also, I believe). Saint Matthew, pray for all of us.

    Mysterious Matthew ! Here is an exciting opportunity for research! Today's technology allows us to unravel many ancient mysteries and maybe this is one of them!

    At the time Matthew disappears from record, he probably WANTED to disappear - to avoid martyrdom and to go on preaching longer - Jesus said that the apostles were to preach to the Gentiles so the idea of escaping and finding a new people for preaching the Word of God would have been considered a fine thing to do.

    But today, it is not so difficult to find old records in many places and share the findings so that they make a completed puzzle and readable picture that provides the answer to mystery of Matthew.

    We follow his gospel - it would be so nice to know more about the author.
