The search committee results are in

It's Matthias! Judas didn't work out too well as one of the Twelve (see Psalm 69:25, "Let his habitation be desolate, and let no man dwell therein;" and Psalm 109:8, "Let his bishopric another take.") It was a challenge to find a new Twelfth Man for the team, but it's a good thing someone brought lots to help decide (read the story in Acts 1:15-26).

O Almighty God, who into the place of the traitor Judas didst choose thy faithful servant Matthias to be of the number of the twelve Apostles: Grant that thy Church, beings alway preserved from false Apostles, may be ordered and guided by faithful and true pastors; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
