AUG 9: COMMEMORATION OF MATTHIAS APOSTLE

  AUG 9: DIVINE LITURGY – CANCELLED. Today we commemorate Matthias, Apostle. The Apostle Matthias, according to the Acts of the Apostles, was chosen by lot to replace Judas Iscariot after his betrayal of Jesus and subsequent death. His calling as an apostle was unique, in that he was not chosen personally by Jesus who had already ascended into Heaven, but made before the descent of the Holy Spirit.
