St. Matthias was chosen after Our Lord's Resurrection to replace the place of Judas the Traitor. His calling as an apostle is unique, in that his appointment was not made personally by Jesus, who had already ascended into heaven, and it was also made before the descent of the Holy Spirit upon the early Church. In this lesson, we will study the life of St. Matthias as presented in the Gospels, in the writings of the Church Fathers, and in the Catechism. We will also learn several prayers to him and have an engaging activity in honor of St. Matthias.
