St. Matthew –
How are we imitating Jesus in inviting people into our life? We come to break bread within Mass, a powerful symbol of togetherness in Jesus. But how inclusive are we of others? Who are the people we shut out of our lives? Some people we might write off since they are of no benefit to us? Jesus was quite inclusive in his relationships. The main point of this passage is not the call of Matthew but the call of a tax-collector, a despised character, a sinner.
