The feast of Saint Thomas, Apostle, who did not believe the other disciples when they announced that Jesus had risen, but, when Jesus himself offered him his pierced side, exclaimed, “My Lord and my God.” From which faith he is said to have evangelized the inhabitants of India.
May Holy Mary and all the saints intercede to the Lord for us, that we may merit to be helped and saved by him who lives and reigns for ever and ever.
V. Precious in the sight of the Lord
R. Is the death of his holy ones.
V. May the Lord bless us, protect us from all evil, and bring us to everlasting life. And may the souls of the faithful departed through the mercy of God rest in pace.
