Patron saints for alcoholics.

Feast day: May 14

For years Matthias followed Jesus. He was with him from the time John the Baptist baptized Jesus until Jesus ascended into Heaven. It wasn’t until after the Ascension that the Apostles selected him to replace Judas. (From Take Ten: Daily Bible Reflections for Teens [Saint Mary’s Press]) (Image via Wikipedia)
