FEAST OF MATTHEW, APOSTLE, EVANGELIST
Who do you see?

We are always sizing up other people, making judgements about them. This is normal. But sometimes, we end up putting people in boxes—and leaving them there. Not so with Jesus. Jesus saw through boxes, categories, and stereotypes. He saw the person. Look at Matthew. Lumped into the distasteful category of “tax collectors and sinners,” Matthew wasn’t exactly considered a shining example of discipleship by the community. Yet, Jesus saw more than that. He saw Matthew and was open to him—and not just to “minister to” or “convert” Matthew. Jesus drew close, inviting Matthew into his home to become a close companion and vital part of proclaiming the Good News. What happens when you truly see people?

TODAY'S READINGS: Ephesians 4:1-7, 11-13; Matthew 9:9-13 (643). “Jesus said to him, ‘Follow me.’ And Matthew got up and followed him.”

The Irish pastor said, “Everyone who wants to go to Heaven stand up!” and the whole church stood up.  And he said, “And those who want to go to hell, remain standing!” At the back of the church, old Murphy remained standing.   The pastor said, “Murphy, do you want to go to hell?”  Murphy said, “No, Father… I just hate to see you go there all by yourself!”
