Today we celebrate the wisdom and courage of St. Thomas the Apostle on his feast day, July 3.
Now Thomas, called the Twin, one of the twelve, was not with them when Jesus came. The other disciples therefore said to him, “We have seen the Lord.”
So he said to them, “Unless I see in his hands the print of the nails, and put my finger in the print of the nails and put my hand into his side, I will not believe.”
And after eight days his disciples were again inside and Thomas with them. Jesus came, the doors being shut and stood in the midst and said, “Peace to you!” Then he said to Thomas, “Reach your finger here, and look at my hands; and reach your hand here and put it into my side. Do not be unbelieving but believing.”
And Thomas answered and said to him, “My Lord and my God!”
Jesus said to him, “Thomas, because you have seen me, you have believed. Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.” (John 20: 24-29)
