This Thursday would be the traditional day of Ascension Thursday (but in this diocese the Ascension is transferred to Sunday). So, we celebrate the Feast of St. Matthias who was chosen by lot to be added to the 12 Apostles in the place of Judas. He was qualified because he witnessed Jesus’ ministry and resurrection. He is said to have been martyred. Lord, may I be like St. Matthias willing to spread the Good News no matter what the cost.
