‘And the lot fell upon Matthias’. Today, we remember the Apostle Matthias, the one chosen to take the place of Judas Iscariot, who had betrayed the Lord. It must have been a difficult task, but he had clearly won the trust of the Christian assembly. He is believed to have been stoned to death in about the year 64AD.

May he pray for us, and may God bless you this day.
