  1. Thank you for this post on this special feast day! The picture ‘Incredulity: “I, Lord?” is amazing because you can really see on Matthew’s face how incredulous he is about Jesus really choosing him! The article was great too! There was another link that you can click from that page that brings you to a great article! Here is the link: http://www.ncregister.com/blog/tim-drake/the-6.15-christ1/ God bless you!!!
