Amos 8:4-6, 9-12;Ps 119a; Matthew 9:9-13


Jesus invites Matthew to follow Him. The Pharisees question his preference for the less privileged. Is that an eye opener for us? He cures the sick, casts out demons, forgives sinners, counsels the worried. There are many who, through their work, often voluntary, with the handicapped and sick, refugees, homeless, imprisoned and persecuted, are in their own small ways imitating Jesus. Let us ask Jesus to give them strength to carry on with their good works.
