September 21 - Saint Matthew
Matthew was called Levi and was a tax collector, a job that was viewed negatively among the people because it was considered that in addition to collaborating with the Romans, they cheated in order to benefit themselves. No Jew would stop to speak with a tax collector, but Jesus stops and invites him. Tired of that life, Matthew rises immediately and follows Jesus.
How quickly do you respond to the Lord’s callings?
