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

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