St. Matthew, Evangelist

Lectionary Readings for St. Matthew


While I suppose there are still some dedicated letter writers around, many of us put off writing, at least any serious writing as long as we can. Oh, we zip off emails and text messages, but term papers, letters to friends we haven’t seen in years, and reports due at work tend to put off to the last minute.

Writing itself, in cursive script, seems even on the way out.

So today on the feast of St. Matthew, let us give thanks for the dedication of the evangelist who gave up ciphering for Rome and not only followed the Lord but who in name and in community, wrote the words and deeds of Jesus down, enabling us to hear Jesus’ words 2000 years later.

 How can we do our part to spread the Word of the Lord?
