Saint Mathius Apostle Spoon

    Became an Aposlte after the Resurrection to replace Judas Iscariot. Choosing a replacement meant finding a disciple who had been with them from the beginning and had witnessed the Resurrection. Eventually it was between Mathius and Joseph Barsabbas, so the two cast lots so that the Lord might make the choice. Mathius preached the Gospel for thirty years in Judea, Egypt and Ethiopia. He was martyed by stoning to death. His feast day is the 14th of May. He is the Patron Saint of tailors, carpenters and alcoholics. The spoon shows him holding a halberd.
