The Incredulity of Saint Thomas  – Caravaggio, c. 1601–1602

In today’s Gospel we hear the familiar story of “doubting” Thomas. In his homily, Fr. Stephen Hamilton urges a deeper reading of Thomas’ character in a speculative reflection on the absence of Thomas in the scene of Christ’s first appearance to the apostles and how we may apply the meditation to our own call proclaim the resurrection.
