I wonder if St. Matthias hesitated to fill Judas' position. I mean, he must have had a moment of hesitation. But despite Judas' actions, the Gospel still had to be proclaimed and Matthias ultimately said "yes" to God's call.
One more thing: Christ calls us all to love in today's Gospel. Notice how many times he says it? If it was easy to do, he wouldn't have had to make such a point of it. How do you say yes to loving one another in your family? Sometimes we focus on what's going wrong in our family, (the fighting, yelling, shirking responsibilities, etc) and forget to notice all the ways we show love every day. Try to point out when you see each family member show love to one another today and praise them for acting like Christ.
Prayer: Lord Jesus, help me to love every person I see. Help me to especially love my family members so that they may see your love through me. In your name I pray, Amen. St. Matthias, pray for me.
