Jul 3 St. Thomas


A Pilgrim's Daily Prayer

Called through the Word to the everlasting journey in the Spirit

from nothingness to union with the One who is the Beginning and the End

Peter Paul Rubens:  The Incredulity of St. Thomas, Koninklijk Museum voor Schone Kunsten, Antwerp, 1613-15

 

Feast of St. Thomas, apostle:                                                  My Lord and My God

 

Readings for Mass
First Reading: Ephesians 2:19-22
Responsorial Psalm: Psalms 117:1, 2
Gospel: John 20:24-29

 

Thomas answered him, ‘My Lord and my God!’ Jesus said to him, ‘Have you believed because you have seen me? Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have come to believe (NRSV, John 20:28-29).’

 

Let us pray,

 

Father, Help me in my belief, that I make you the center of everything that I am and that I do.  May the power of the resurrection which brought Jesus through death, also fill me that I may live a life worthy of the great gift of your life that you share with me.  May I share that divine life with others by giving myself to them in acts of service.

 

Through Christ our Lord.  Amen.
