July 3, 2018 (Feast of St. Thomas)

The figure of St. Thomas plays a crucial function in the Gospel according to St. John. Every time he expresses some doubt or confusion, it gives Jesus an opportunity to tell us something deeper about His true identity. Unfortunately, this has caused people to call St Thomas, “Doubting Thomas.” But, we should thank St. Thomas. He has led us to the highest Christology in the Bible, calling Jesus: “My Lord and my God.”
