In honor of the day

On this day Mother Church celebrates the life and witness of Saint Mathias, the man chosen to replace Judas the betrayer.

Reflecting on this thirteenth Apostle, Pope Benedict XVI said:
We draw from this a final lesson: while there is no lack of unworthy and traitorous Christians in the Church, it is up to each of us to counterbalance the evil done by them with our clear witness to Jesus Christ, our Lord and Saviour.
