Happy Feast Day, Diocese!

Today is the feast day of the co-patron of the Diocese of Gary, St. Matthias.  He was the person who was selected to take the place of Judas Iscariot, the one who handed Jesus over for trial and crucifixion.  Matthias would be martyred later by being chopped apart by an ax.  Being a follower of Jesus is not always easy; but, we are called to embrace our own crosses and follow Him daily.
