Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ 

Jesus said to Thomas, “Put your finger here and see my hands, and bring your hand

and put it into my side, and do not be unbelieving, but believe.”

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint John 20:24-29.

Thomas, called Didymus, one of the Twelve, was not with them when Jesus came.
So the other disciples said to him, “We have seen the Lord.” But he said to them, “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.”
Now a week later his disciples were again inside and Thomas was with them. Jesus came, although the doors were locked, and stood in their midst and said, “Peace be with you.”
Then he said to Thomas, “Put your finger here and see my hands, and bring your hand and put it into my side, and do not be unbelieving, but believe.”
Thomas answered and said to him, “My Lord and my God!”
Jesus said to him, “Have you come to believe because you have seen me? Blessed are those who have not seen and have believed.”

Commentary of the day

Basil of Seleucia

(?-c.468), Bishop
Sermon for the Resurrection, 1-4

«Go into the whole world and proclaim the gospel to every creature» (Mc 16,15)

“Put your finger into the mark of the nails”, Jesus said to Thomas. “You were looking for me when I was not here; take advantage of it now that I am here. I know what you are wanting to do in spite of your silence. Even before you tell me, I know what you are thinking. I heard what you said and, even though unseen, I was beside you, close to your doubts, and made you wait so that I could witness your impatience all the better without revealing myself . Put your finger into the mark of the nails; put your hand into my side; and do not be unbelieving, but believe.”

Then Thomas touched him. All his defiance fell away and, filled with sincere faith and all the love owing to God, he cried out: “My Lord and my God!” And the Lord said to him: “You have believed because you have seen me. Blessed are those who have not seen and yet believe! Thomas, take the news of my resurrection to those who have not seen. Lead the whole world to belief, not at the evidence of its eyes but at your word. Go through peoples and pagan cities. Teach them to the carry the cross on their shoulders, not weapons… Tell them they are called by grace and, as for you, consider their faith: truly, happy are those who have not seen and yet believe!”

Such is the army the Lord has raised; these are the children of the baptismal pool, the works of grace, the harvest of the Spirit. They have followed Christ without having seen him; they sought and they believed. They recognised with the eyes of faith, not of the body. They have not placed their fingers in the marks of the nails but have been fastened to his cross and embraced his sufferings. They have not seen the Lord’s side but, through grace, have been made one with his members and have made their own these words of the Lord: “Happy are those who have not seen and have believed!”

Saint of the day

St. Thomas, Apostle

-Feast

SAINT THOMAS
Apostle

        St. Thomas was one of the fishermen on the Lake of A Galilee whom our Lord called to be his apostles. By nature slow to believe, too apt to see difficulties, and to look at the dark side of things, he had withal a most sympathetic, loving, and courageous heart.

        Once when Jesus spoke of the mansions in his Father’s house, St. Thomas, in his simplicity, asked: “Lord, we know not whither you go, and how can we know the way?”

        When Jesus turned to go toward Bethany to the grave of Lazarus, the desponding apostle at once feared the worst for his beloved Lord, yet cried out bravely to the rest: “Let us also go and die with him”

        After the Resurrection, incredulity again prevailed, and whilst the wounds of the crucifixion were imprinted vividly on his affectionate mind, he would not credit the report that Christ had indeed risen. But at the actual sight of the pierced hands and side, and the gentle rebuke of his Saviour, unbelief was gone forever; and his faith and ours has ever triumphed in the joyous utterance into which he broke: “My Lord and my God!”
