Passionist Father Donald Senior encourages us to appreciate the beauty of Matthew's Gospel, to savor its portrait of Jesus and his disciples, and to recapture its distinctiveness. With passion and insight, Fr. Senior examines Jesus as one who reveres the old and creates the new; as a teacher who knows the compassionate heart of truth; as a healer who bears the pain of this world; as one obedient unto death, whose trust God vindicates; as one who envisions all peoples within the embrace of God; as one who remains in solidarity with his community until the end of time.
In the portrait of the disciples, Fr. Senior describes individuals who are commissioned yet flawed; who understand God's will; who are people of little faith; who are a community of reconciliation and learning; who are empowered by Jesus and sent to the ends of the world.
