Liturgical Season: Ordinary Time
Saint Thomas, Apostle
“He who is humble easily obeys everyone, fears to offend anyone, is at peace with everyone, is kind with all”.
Thomas is famous for having doubted the Resurrection of Jesus and for demanding physical proof of the wounds of Christ's Crucifixion. The phrase “doubting Thomas” was coined for his lack of faith. When Jesus showed him the wounds, Saint Thomas became the first person to explicitly acknowledge the divinity of Jesus.
Prayer: Almighty and ever-living God who strengthened the faith of Thomas, strengthened me to recognise your divine presence in my life. Amen.
