|Saint Matthias from the workshop|
of Simone Martini
Take time today to reflect on how the Holy Spirit is at work within your heart and soul. How do you feel God calling you to “go forth”? What does it mean for you that you have been chosen by God and entrusted with a unique vocation for the building up of the Kingdom of God?
O God, who assigned Saint Matthias
a place in the college of Apostles,
grant us, through his intercession,
that, rejoicing at how your love has been allotted to us,
we may merit to be numbered among the elect.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
(from The Roman Missal)
