PRAYER and ANNOUNCEMENTS for September 21, 2020


Good morning JCA family. Today is Monday, September 21st, 2020.

Today is the Feast of Saint Matthew the Apostle. Matthew lived in the first century and was a tax collector for the Romans. Jesus called him to follow him. Matthew left his post as a tax collector and became an Apostle of Jesus Christ. Matthew is also one of the four Evangelists who wrote a Gospel of Christ’s life.

Our prayer today starts with a reading from the Gospel according to Matthew: As Jesus passed by,
he saw a man named Matthew sitting at the customs post.
He said to him, “Follow me.”
And he got up and followed him.
While he was at table in his house,
many tax collectors and sinners came
and sat with Jesus and his disciples.
The Pharisees saw this and said to his disciples,
“Why does your teacher eat with tax collectors and sinners?”
He heard this and said,
“Those who are well do not need a physician, but the sick do.
Go and learn the meaning of the words,
I desire mercy, not sacrifice.
I did not come to call the righteous but sinners.”
Lord, help me to follow your call like St. Matthew did and show your mercy to a world in so much strife. Amen.
