Mon., 14 May: St. Matthias: Mass at 7 PM
In the choosing of Matthias to replace the
traitor Judas, we can see that the author of
the Acts of the Apostles differs from St Paul
in his understanding of apostleship. The
number had to be restored so that they
might sit on thrones judging the twelve
tribes of Israel. It was conditional that they
had to have been with Jesus during his
earthly ministry and witnesses to the resurrection.
The point of being chosen by lot,
rather than by election, indicated the choice
was Godís alone.

Wed., 23 May: St. William of Perth: Mass at 10 AM
Tradition has it that William was a devout
baker from Perth. He adopted an abandoned
boy and brought him up. On pilgrimage
to Jerusalem in 1201, this youth
murdered William on the road between
Rochester and Canterbury. As he had been
brutally slain while on pilgrimage, William
was widely considered a martyr. Though
venerated as William of Rochester, he was
never officially canonised.

Thurs., 31 May: Corpus Christi: Mass at 7 PM
(transferred to 1 June from 31 May)
The celebration of this feast first occurred
among the Franciscans in 1263, but quickly
spread throughout Europe. Since it recalls
an incident clearly described in Scripture,
the churches of the Reformation three hundred
years later were less inclined to proscribe
it than they were other Marian feasts,
particularly as it was the occasion for the
blessed Virgin to sing her great hymn of
praise the Magnificat. The story of the Visitation
emphasises the connection between
the old covenant and the new, and how the
former clearly points to Jesus as the promised
Messiah.
