St. MATTHEW

Christian Saint

Also known as Matthew the Apostle

Tax-deductible Gospel Author and Patron Saint of Accountants

Matthew is the famous New Testament tax collector who turned disciple. As soon as he met Jesus he realized tax collecting was just too spiritually taxing.

Instead he invested everything in the brand new Christianity startup and received a massive return, becoming one of the four Gospel writers and earning himself enormous heavenly dividends.

He is believed to have gone evangelizing in Ethiopia where he eventually got himself martyred. There was no writer around to jot down his obituary.

He’s now the Patron Saint of Accountants, Book Keepers, Tax Collectors, Financial Advisors and Bankers. A very good saint to know if you need financial assistance — and of course he’s completely tax-deductible.
