The First Reading tells the story of how Matthias joined the ranks of the Twelve. In the days following the Ascension, the Apostles decided to fill the place Judas had taken. Like Matthias, each of us has been chosen by the Holy Spirit to be followers of Christ. We are counted among the saints who make known God’s salvation. Have you ever taken time to consider your role as a disciple? Today’s Readings: Acts 1:15 –17, 20 – 26; Psalm 113:1– 2, 3 – 4, 5 – 6, 7– 8; John 15:9 –17.
