St. Junipero Serra
As Jesus passed on from there, he saw a man named Matthew sitting at the customs post. He said to him, "Follow me." And he got up and followed him. While he was at table in his house, many tax collectors and sinners came and sat with Jesus and his disciples. The Pharisees saw this and said to his disciples, "Why does your teacher eat with tax collectors and sinners?" He heard this and said, "Those who are well do not need a physician, but the sick do. Go and learn the meaning of the words, 'I desire mercy, not sacrifice.' I did not come to call the righteous but sinners" (Matthew 9: 9-13).
Every single one of us is a sinner. So we all need Christ in our lives and Christ was generous enough to come and spend time with everyone: the rich, the poor, the virtuous and the sinful because He wanted to make an impact on all of their lives.
Lord Jesus, I am a sinner and I need you. Please come into my life.
