05-14-18 Catholic Daily Mass Quotes

May 14, 2018
(St. Matthias, Apostle)
Peter and the Apostles 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.  Acts_1:15-17,20-26

The will of God vs the will of man!  Sometimes, beloved we just have to be clear of the difference.  God doesn’t work with “lots” or Ouija boards, or Urim and Thummin, or dice, or seances, or divination.  If we need an answer and need to rely on those means to find it, so be it.  But don’t blame the answer or give credit for the answer on God.

The Apostles weren’t blaming God, but they were counting on Him to give an answer through those occult means.  In the case of this apostolic decision, either of the two candidates were equally qualified.  Their prayer was great, their rationale for electing a 12th apostle was Scripturally based.  But they just didn’t give credit where credit was due.  It was pure happenstance!  And note too that this is just this humble author’s opinion.  Maybe I’m way off base.  But I do believe that God would have been pleased with either choice!
