Saint Thomas the Twin

On a balmy summer morning we hear once again an Eastertide Gospel. Thomas' questioning leads to his intimate encounter with the wounded and resurrected Jesus. The wounds in the Body of Christ are places for our intimate encounter with the risen Lord.

"Put your finger here and see my hands,
and bring your hand and put it into my side,
and do not be unbelieving, but believe."
Thomas answered and said to him, "My Lord and my God!"
