St. Matthew Story

St. Matthew
Patron Saint Of Accountants, Bankers, and Finance Professionals
(First Century)

One of the twelve Apostles chosen by Jesus, Matthew was a tax collector prior to his conversion.  In that role, Matthew was viewed as an agent of the enemy by those from whom he collected taxes.  Many were surprised that Jesus would associate with a person considered a traitor by many.  But Jesus, through His actions and His works, illustrated that He came "not to call the just, buy sinners".  Matthew's apostolic activity is believed to have taken place in Palestine, Ethiopia, Parthia, and Persia.

Drafted between 42 and 72 AD, Matthew's Gospel was written in Aramaic both for the faithful and those who did not believe.  It was and is encouragement for believers.  For non-Christians, it was designed to convince them that the Messiah had come in a spiritual rather than a carnal way in the person of Jesus.

Matthew's name means gift of God and he is typically depicted with representations of a pen and money.  Aptly, Matthew is the patron of tax collectors, accountants, bankers, bookkeepers, financial officers, money managers and stock brokers.  Other patronages include customers officers, guards, Salerno, Italy, and security forces.
