A witness to his resurrection

May 14, 2018 6:00 am

“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.” (ACTS 1: 21-22)

When Judas betrayed Our Lord and “was the guide for those who arrested Jesus,” the Apostles gave lots to the two candidates, and “the lot fell upon Matthias, and he was counted with the eleven apostles.” The only qualification was: “accompanied us the whole time the Lord Jesus came” and became “with us a witness to his resurrection.” When we protect our prayer time to be with Jesus and are “witnesses to his resurrection,” we “bear fruits that will last.”

“I chose you from the world, to go and bear fruit that will last, says the Lord.” (Gospel Acclamation)
