St MATTHIAS

Information

St. Matthias was chosen by lot to replace Judas as one of the twelve disciples (Acts 1:23-26).

"So they proposed two, Joseph called Barsabbas, who was also known as Justus, and Matthias. Then they prayed,
'You, Lord, who know the hearts of all, show which one of these two you have chosen to take the place in this apostolic ministry from which Judas turned away to go to his own place.'
Then they gave lots to them, and the lot fell upon Matthias, and he was counted with the eleven apostles."

St. Matthias is included in the Roman Canon.
