September 21 is celebrated in Catholic Tradition as the Feast of Saint Matthew.

Matthew is traditionally considered the author of the 28-chapter account of Christ’s  life entitled in printed bibles “The Gospel according to Saint Matthew”.

Saint Matthew’s gospel differs from those of Saints Mark, Luke and John its more Jewish flavour and more detailed account of Christ’s words about what God’s “kingdom” really is and what it might look like if brought into existence on this earth.

A 1964 film based on this gospel called “The Gospel According to Matthew”, directed by Pier Paolo Pasolini can be viewed online.

You’ll need to set aside just over two hours. It might stir up some thoughts.
