Saint Matthias

Saint Matthias was one of the seventy-two disciples of Jesus. After the Lord's Ascension St Peter asked the 120 people gathered in prayer to choose an apostle to replace Judas. Peter said it should be someone who had been with Jesus from his baptism until the Ascension. Out of the two men proposed one was Matthias, the other Joseph, called Barsabbas. Matthias' name was chosen. He preached the Good News in Judea, Cappadocia, Egypt, and Ethiopia. Runtime : 2:01 mins
