Feast of St. Thomas, Apostle
"Peace be with you." That's Jesus' greeting and desire for all of us. His presence immediately brings peace to Thomas' doubts and questions.
One more thing: Thomas doesn't get scolded for questioning. Jesus doesn't ridicule him for his doubts. He simply presents himself to Thomas and immediately calms the storm inside him. Do you ever have fears and doubts? If you have a teenager living in your house you do! Simply opening yourself to claim Jesus as your "Lord and God" will bring you peace just as it did Thomas.
Prayer: Lord Jesus, help me to be aware of all the little ways you show yourself to me each day. Let my recognition of your presence in my life bring me peace and comfort. In your name I pray, Amen. St. Thomas, pray for me.
