Angry Thomas and the Mission of the Church
Angry Thomas and the Mission of the Church Thomas never doubted, he refused to believe
Today’s Gospel is always read on the Second Sunday of Easter. It is the famous Gospel about Thomas not being present when Jesus first appeared.
When he hears reports that Jesus appeared to the apostles and to the women, his immediate response many interpret as doubt. He needs to see Jesus to believe; the others’ reports are not enough. I always point out that this is wrong. His response is not doubt, it is anger.
