Saint-Matthias.jpgHoly Spirit, before You descended on the disciples, You chose Saint Matthias to replace Judas as the twelfth apostle.  This was the beginning of the apostolic succession and a reminder to us today that You are the One who calls men to the priesthood.  I ask Saint Matthias to pray for an increase of vocations.  Open our ears, O Lord, to hear the invitation to become who You created us to be.  Teach us to put away the deceptions of the world that distract us from knowing Your choice for our career paths, and help us to overcome the obstacles that keep us from following Your command. Saint Matthias, pray for us.  Amen.
