Feast of St. Matthew

Today we celebrate the feast of St. Matthew, evangelist and martyr and yes, one-time tax collector. If you want to get an idea of what kind of status Matthew enjoyed in society prior to being called by Jesus, think of a Philadelphia Parking Authority ticket-writer. The lesson to be learned is that all of us are called and perhaps none so much as the ungodly. No matter what we've done and what anyone else thinks of us, we are worth much more than the weight of our sins.
