St. Matthew the Apostle

St. Matthew the Apostle, also known as Levi, was a tax collector before Jesus called him to follow Him. The people considered him a great sinner but Jesus said, ‘I have come not to call the righteous, but sinners.’ St. Matthew was also an evangelist since he wrote one of the Gospels in the Bible. He is often portrayed with a winged man, one of the four creatures near the throne of God described in the Book of Revelation. St. Matthew's feast day is on 21 September.
