A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:

A reflection on today's Sacred Scripture:
It is awesome to think of the important roles of the 12 apostles, and harder even to imagine what it would be like to have Christ in their midst every day. In the Gospel of today, we see how simply Christ called forth Matthew to follow Him, to become an apostle.

Christ called each of us to 'follow Him' on the day of our baptism. Each of us is unique and has been given a role to perform that no one else can do. We, like the apostles, are to be 'Church' to others. Each of us is a walking reflection of what it means to be a Christian. Most of us are not given outstanding tasks to perform, but every task we perform is important in building up the Kingdom of God. No one else can do it. So let us consider that at the break of each new day, Christ is at our bedside saying to us, as He did to Matthew, "Follow Me".

"Here I am Lord, I come to do your will"
