Daily Mass: Follow me. Catholic Inspiration

The call of Matthew in the Gospel reminds us that God calls all of us – regardless of our weaknesses, failures or past history – and invites us to offer our lives.  In other words, God does not call the perfect; rather, the Lord chooses us (warts and all) and blesses us with what we need to accomplish our task.  Like Matthew, may we accept the invitation and follow Christ!
