One of the intriguing scenes in the Resurrection narratives is the interaction between the Risen Lord and his Apostle, St. Thomas. Plenty have opined the meaning.

Aquinas comments on the famous scene:  “Those who believe without seeing are more meritorious than those who, seeing, believe” (In Johann. XX lectio VI 2566).

St. Thomas, pray for us, secure for us the grace to believe in Christ crucified and risen.
