The Epistle of today gives an account of the election of St. Matthias as it has been preserved for us in the Acts of the Apostles. He had been one of the disciples during the whole of our Lord’s public life and like the others, was a witness of His resurrection. He it was who took the place of Judas among the Twelve. The Church venerates St. Matthias on an equal footing with the other Apostles, whose voices resound throughout the world, from generation to generation, giving testimony of what they saw and heard in their life with our Lord.
