Saint Thomas the Apostle

FEAST DAY JULY 3rd

St. Thomas, our parish patron Saint, was one of the Twelve Apostles. He was a Jew from Galilee called by Jesus to accompany him on his mission to proclaim the Kingdom of God. When Jesus’ life was threatened as he went to raise Lazarus from the dead, Thomas said to the others, “Let us also go, that we may die with Jesus’.
Thomas doubted that Jesus had truly been raised from the dead. The Resurrection was proven to Thomas when Jesus appeared to him. Thomas said, “My Lord and My God”.
St. Gregory the Great once said, “The unbelief of Thomas has done more for our faith than the faith of the other disciples. Our doubts are answered by the demand of St. Thomas to know that Jesus’ resurrection was real.
According to tradition, St. Thomas preached the gospel in India.

My Jesus, I believe that You are present in the Holy Sacrament. I love You above all things, and I desire to receive You into my soul. Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen.
