The Martyrdom of St. Matthew the Evangelist.
On this day also, St. Matthew the Evangelist, was martyred. He was one of the Twelve Disciples and his name was Levi. He was the one sitting at the receipt of custom outside the city of
, when the Lord Christ
said to him, "Follow Me." He left all, rose up, and followed Him. He
made for the Lord Christ a great feast in his own house. That made the
Pharisees murmur against Him saying to His disciples, "Why do your teacher
eat and drink with tax collectors and sinners?" Jesus answered and said to
them, "Those who are well do not need a physician, but those who are sick.
I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance." (Luke
He preached in the
and land of Palestine and Tyre . Then he went to Sidon . He entered the city of
priests and converted them to the knowledge of God. When he wished to enter the
city, he met a young man who told him, "You will not be able to go in
unless you shave off the hair of your head and carry palm branches in your
hand." He did as the young man told him. And, as he was thinking about
that, the Lord Christ appeared to him in the form of the young man who had met
him earlier, and after He encouraged and comforted him, disappeared. He
realized that this young man was the Lord of Glory Himself. Ethiopia
He then entered the city as one of its priests. He went to the
and found the high
priest, and talked with him concerning the idols that they were worshipping. He
explained to him how those idols did not hear or sense anything and how the
true Mighty Lord is He who created the Heaven and Earth. The Lord made through
him a wonder: a table came down to them from Heaven and a great light shone
around them. When Hermes the priest saw this wonder, he asked him, "What
is the name of your God?" The apostle replied, "My God is the Lord
Christ." Hermes, the priest, believed in Christ and many people followed
him. temple of Apollo
When the Governor of the city knew that, he ordered them burned. It happened at that time that the son of the Governor died. St. Matthew the Apostle prayed and made supplications to God to raise the son and the Lord answered him and raised the child from death. When the Governor saw that, he and the rest of the people of the city believed.
St. Matthew baptized them
and ordained a bishop and priests, and built a church for them.
After he had preached in other countries, he went back to
. Some of the Jews which
had been preached to, and had believed and been baptized by him, asked him to
write down what he had preached to them. He wrote the beginning of the Gospel
attributed to him in the Hebrew language but he did not complete it. It was
said that he finished it during his preaching in Jerusalem , in the first year of the
reign of Claudius and the ninth year of the Ascension. His martyrdom was
consummated by stoning by the hands of Justus the Governor, and his body was
buried in India of Carthage Caesarea by some believers, in a
His prayers are with us. Amen.

لقد حان الوقت
يجب عليه أن يشعر بقيمتي
صحيح أن الوقت تأخر و إنني أموت الآن
و لكني سعيد انه سيشعر بقيمتي.. و لو بعد موتي
ها هو يحاول.. و يحاول.. و يحاول
و لكن هيهات
قلت لكم إنني أموت الآن
انه يضغط علي زر بجواره و يدخل السكرتير
انه يقول له في ضجر
" ياريت تشوف لي معاك قلم جديد
القلم بتاعي مابيكتبش
ثم القي بي في سله المهملات
في حياتي و بعد موتي الأمر سيان
