Matthew 9:9-13

Despite the fact that Matthew is deemed by others to be a sinner because of his occupation, Jesus calls him to be a disciple and follow him. The Pharisees are further infuriated by Jesus’ dining with Matthew and other sinners. Jesus speaks to them about the inclusivity of God’s love and mercy.

You hold me in your love and mercy, O Lord. I pray to do the same with my sisters and brothers, your children, no matter who they are or what they do.
