583px the calling of saint matthew caravaggo 1599 1600In September 2013, Pope Francis gave a remarkable interview in which he was asked: “Who is Jorge Mario Bergoglio?” His answer was “I am a sinner”, but more concretely, he explained that he was thinking about Caravaggio’s painting The Calling of St. Matthew (pictured at left) saying: “That’s me. I feel like him … Here, this is me, a sinner whom the Lord has turned his gaze."


From tax collector to evangelist, St. Matthew leaves us a rich gospel driven by the question of sin, of what it means to be Christian and Jewish and to encounter the risen Lord.

Journey with us this Fall: Scripture Encounter


We will be journeying together through the first half of Matthew’s Gospel; reading, praying and discussing the Word of God. Breaking the word open together helps us to encounter Christ and grow as his disciples and in community.
