St. Matthias, Apostle

Acts 1:15-17, 20-26; Psalm 113; John 15:9-17

Call to love

Being chosen as an apostle is a life-altering vocation. Such a call means a person must remain in Jesus Christ’s love. The betrayer was not able to do this. Loving one another as Jesus Christ commands us to do is easy and joyful if I remain in Jesus Christ’s love. Jesus wants me for a friend. Friends somewhat know each other’s business. All vocational life has within it the inherent call to loving friendship with Jesus Christ. Whatever my vocation may be, my growth in love will determine how well I live it out.
