Patron of accountants, bookkeepers, guards, and stockbrokers
Matthew was originally named Levi and was a Jewish tax collector in Galilee. Because of his profession, he was distrusted and held in contempt by all. Jesus called Levi to follow Him, renaming him Matthew, meaning “gift of God.” Matthew gave up his accounting and all his worldly goods to follow Jesus. St. Matthew is one of the Four Evangelists and author of the first Gospel.
