Prayer of the Day

"I have come to call not the righteous but sinners to repentance." Luke 5 : 32
Tax Collector

First Levi, a tax collector,  leaves his customs post,  but not everything since he can still afford to prepare a great banquet,  perhaps a farewell one,  in his house.  We know that he made a final break with his former life.  Then comes a break from the customary practice of Jewish teachers shying away from table fellowship with tax collectors and sinners.  The Pharisees consider these people as unclean,  Jesus has come to serve them.  They are the sick and sinners He must minister to and bring to repentance.

Prayer

We pray for all bishops and leaders of the Church, that God may continue to call faithful pastoral leaders to guide our Church, and maintain our unity. Lord hear us. Amen
