Prayers to Saint Thomas

Saint Thomas the Apostle is the patron saint of Architects and the Blind. His birthdate and death date remains unknown but we celebrate his feast day on July 3rd. Thomas first did not believe of the resurrection of Jesus, until he saw and touched the nail wounds. When offered, he refused and said "My Lord and My God!" At Lake Tiberias, St. Thomas is said to have been at another Resurrection appearance of Jesus when a miraculous catch of fish occurred. 

Prayer to Saint Thomas the Apostle

O Glorious Saint Thomas,
your grief for Jesus was such 
that it would not let you believe 
he had risen unless you actually 
saw him and touched his wounds.

But your love for Jesus
was equally great and it led you
to give up your life for him.
Pray for us that we may grieve
for our sins which were the cause of Christ's sufferings.
Help us to spend ourselves in his service

and so earn the title of "blessed"

which Jesus applied to those who would believe
in him without seeing him.
Amen.
