Commentary on the Gospel of

Claretian Bible Diary


St. Augustine thinks Matthew was not called at the same time as the others because he had some financial matters to finish off.  But a sixth century writer took it that Matthew left his affairs in disorder, a thing that greatly impressed him.  It must be particularly difficult for someone who deals with figures to leave them unbalanced.  Do we have to balance our books before we set out on the Gospel path?
