Friends, today we celebrate the feast of the Apostle Thomas, known as 'doubting Thomas' because his reticence to believe that Christ had truly risen. When the risen Lord did appear to him, Jesus was compassionate and understanding and met his doubts by placing his hand into his wounds. Jesus respects and understands our doubts. He wants us to face them and he meets them head on. So what then are our doubts? What are our struggles with faith? Let us acknowledge them by seeking the truth and asking for the grace to grow in faith. In this we hope because from doubting Thomas came one of the most profound confessions of faith in the history of the Church where the Jesus Thomas doubted was acclaimed by him as 'My Lord and my God'.
