Saint Matthew, author of the Gospel of Matthew, is one of the Four Evangelists. Because he was a tax collector he was unpopular. Jesus, however, supported Matthew and brought him on his preaching journeys. It was on these travels that Matthew witnessed and later recorded Jesus’s famous “Sermon on the Mount.” It includes the Parable of the Lost Sheep, which reminds us to look after the one who has fallen astray. Pray to Saint Matthew, Patron of Bankers, Financial Planners, and Stockbrokers, to help you find compassion towards those who persecute you and to “turn the other cheek,” as Jesus did throughout his life.
