St. Thomas, Apostle

Ephesians 2:19-22, Ps.117, John 20:24-29

A loyal pessimist

Thomas the doubter! I can’t help loving Thomas, with his honesty and sturdy determination not to be hoodwinked or swayed by emotion. In spite of his gloom and his doubts he never ceased loving and following Jesus, even when he was convinced no good would come of it.

I know people like this, I expect we all do, people prone to pessimism and depression, but faithful and loyal, people for whom life is always a struggle; probably you do too. Let’s pray for them today.
