St. Matthias is the apostle chosen to replace Judas Iscariot. Little is known of his missionary activity, but tradition states that he preached in Judea. He is credited with a Gospel and other discourses that have not been historically confirmed. His feast day is May 14.
On May 13 we celebrate the feast of Our Lady of Fatima. In today’s post you’ll meet the three children to whom Mary appeared in 1917: Lucia, Francisco, and Jacinta.
On May 10 we celebrate the feast day of St. Damien de Veuster. A gregarious boy, he had the heart of a missionary and was known to pray each day to become one.

Today, May 3, we celebrate the feast of Saints Philip and James. The relics of Saints Philip and James are still venerated in the crypt of the Twelve Apostles. Learn more about them in today’s post.
Maybe you remember we celebrated the feast of St. Joseph on March 19. Today, May 1, we celebrate another feast dedicated to Jesus’ earthly father, that of St. Joseph the Worker. Why two feasts?
