14May Dublin Diocese preparing to re-open Churches

UPDATED with sample of guidelines from Diocese of Santa Fe, USA

14May 14 May, 2020. St Matthias, apostle

After Judas abandoned Jesus, the team of twelve apostles was reduced to eleven. It was important to revive the full team and fill the vacancy, because that number twelve was very significant. Israel consisted of twelve tribes and the twelve selected by Jesus were the nucleus of the new Israel, the revived people of God that would consist of Jews and non-Jews. Matthias was the one chosen to replace Judas and to restore the integrity of the original twelve.
