Saint Matthew, Apostle and Evangelist
First Reading: Ephesians 4: 1-7, 11-13

1 I, then, a prisoner for the Lord, urge you to live in a manner worthy of the call you have received,

2 with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another through love,

3 striving to preserve the unity of the spirit through the bond of peace:

4 one body and one Spirit, as you were also called to the one hope of your call;

5 one Lord, one faith, one baptism;

6 one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.

7 But grace was given to each of us according to the measure of Christ’s gift.

11 And he gave some as apostles, others as prophets, others as evangelists, others as pastors and teachers,

12 to equip the holy ones for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ,

13 until we all attain to the unity of faith and knowledge of the Son of God, to mature manhood, to the extent of the full stature of Christ,

Responsorial Psalm: Psalms 19: 2-3, 4-5

2 The heavens declare the glory of God; the sky proclaims its builder’s craft.

3 One day to the next conveys that message; one night to the next imparts that knowledge.

4 There is no word or sound; no voice is heard;

5 Yet their report goes forth through all the earth, their message, to the ends of the world. God has pitched there a tent for the sun;

Gospel: Matthew 9:9-13

9 As Jesus passed on from there, he saw a man named Matthew sitting at the customs post. He said to him, “Follow me.” And he got up and followed him.

10 While he was at table in his house, many tax collectors and sinners came and sat with Jesus and his disciples.

11 The Pharisees saw this and said to his disciples, “Why does your teacher eat with tax collectors and sinners?”

12 He heard this and said, “Those who are well do not need a physician, but the sick do.

13 Go and learn the meaning of the words, ‘I desire mercy, not sacrifice.’ I did not come to call the righteous but sinners.”
