Saint Matthew

St. Matthew the Evangelist, 13th century, from the Monastery of Gregoriou

 Levi was Matthew’s original name, and he was a tax-gatherer for Herod Antipas before being called by Jesus.  As a disciple and an apostle he accompanied Christ until the time of his passion, and in Galilee was one of the witnesses of his resurrection.  He was also present at the time of Christ’s ascension and afterwards withdrew to an upper chamber, in Jerusalem, praying in union with Mary, the Mother of Jesus, and with his brethren (Acts 1:10 and 1:14).

Matthew’s symbol is that of a man, because his gospel narrative begins with the genealogy of Jesus.
