The Calling of Matthew

Daily Gospel Reading – Matthew 9:9-13audio-icon-matthew-9-vs-9-13-calling-of-matthew

9 As Jesus passed on from there, He saw a man named Matthew sitting at the tax collector’s station. And He said to him, “Follow Me.” And he rose and followed Him.

10 While Jesus sat at supper in the house, many tax collectors and sinners came and sat down with Him and His disciples. 11 When the Pharisees saw it, they said to His disciples, “Why does your Teacher eat with tax collectors and sinners?”

12 But when Jesus heard that, He said to them, “Those who are well do not need a physician, but those who are sick. 13 But go and learn what this means, ‘I desire mercy, and not sacrifice.’[a] For I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners, to repentance.”
