St Thomas Apostle and Doubts

Celebrated the Holy Latin Mass here at the Abbey of Christ the King.  What a beautiful feast day of St. Thomas.  He is great for us who do not have perfect faith.  St Thomas lived with Jesus, but still doubted the resurrection.  So let us ask St. Thomas to help us believe.  But at the same time Jesus helped him believe by appearing to him.  So it is not bad that we too need some miracles or signs that build up our faith.  Lord I believe, but increase my faith.  As we approach Christmas, we need to ask Mary too to help us believe.  Mary had to accept her great mission as Mother of God with FAITH.
