Prayer to Saint Matthew

O Glorious St. Matthew,
in your Gospel you portray Jesus
as the longed-for Messiah
who fulfilled the Prophets
of the Old Covenant and
as the Lawgiver who founded
a Church of the New Covenant.
Obtain for us the grace to see
Jesus living in His Church and
to follow His teaching in our lives
on Earth so that we may live forever
with Him in heaven.

God of Mercy
You chose a tax collector,
Saint Matthew, to share
the dignity of the apostles. 
By his example 
and prayers help us follow 
Christ and remain faithful in 
Your service.
We ask this through 
Our Lord Jesus Christ, 
Your Son, who lives
and reigns with You 
and the Holy Spirit, 
one God, forever and ever.
