About St. Thomas the Apostle
Feast Day: Sunday, July 3, 2022
St. Thomas was one of the twelve apostles of Jesus Christ. He is perhaps best known as “Doubting Thomas”. When the resurrected Jesus appeared in the upper room, Thomas was not there. The apostles told him about it, but he said “Unless I see the mark of the nails in his hands and put my finger into the nailmarks and put my hand into his side, I will not believe.” When Jesus appeared again, he invited Thomas to touch the marks. Thomas replied with a profession of faith: “My Lord and my God!”.
Thomas may have been unfairly labeled with a negative image. He only asked to see what the others had seen. Would they have believed if they had not seen the risen Jesus Christ? His profession of faith is clear and absolute.
It is believed that St. Thomas spread the gospel message to the east. He is thought to have been martyred in India. His feast day is July 3.
