Seventh Sunday of Easter

Peter stood up in the midst of the brothers


—there was a group of about one hundred and twenty persons


in the one place —.


He said, “My brothers,


the Scripture had to be fulfilled


which the Holy Spirit spoke beforehand


through the mouth of David, concerning Judas,


who was the guide for those who arrested Jesus.


He was numbered among us


and was allotted a share in this ministry.

“For it is written in the Book of Psalms:


    May another take his office.

“Therefore, it is necessary that one of the men


who accompanied us the whole time


the Lord Jesus came and went among us,


beginning from the baptism of John


until the day on which he was taken up from us,


become with us a witness to his resurrection.”


So they proposed two, Judas called Barsabbas,


who was also known as Justus, and Matthias.


Then they prayed,


“You, Lord, who know the hearts of all,


show which one of these two you have chosen


to take the place in this apostolic ministry


from which Judas turned away to go to his own place.”


Then they gave lots to them, and the lot fell upon Matthias,


and he was counted with the eleven apostles.
