Eight Days of Doubt: Feast of St. Thomas the Apostle

This is a reflection delivered after mass on the Feast of St. Thomas the Apostle. Thomas often gets a bad rap for doubting… but have you ever noticed that he STAYED with the other Apostles a full week after they started raving over something he totally didn’t believe? This is impressive to me, and it teaches us that doubt doesn’t have to make us leave the Church. In fact, his willingness to stay with the apostles gave Thomas the chance to have his doubts finally set aside by the Risen Lord coming face to face with him. If Thomas had given up and peaced out, he wouldn’t have been there eight days later to cry out in awe: “My Lord and my God!”
