Feast of Saint Thomas the Apostle

For I think that God hath set forth us apostles, the last, as it were men appointed to death: we are made a spectacle to the world, and to angels, and to men. We are fools for Christ's sake, but you are wise in Christ; we are weak, but you are strong; you are honorable, but we without honor.
Even unto this hour we both hunger and thirst, and are naked, and are buffeted, and have no fixed abode;  And we labor, working with our own hands: we are reviled, and we bless; we are persecuted, and we suffer it.  We are blasphemed, and we entreat; we are made as the refuse of this world, the offscouring of all even until now. I write not these things to confound you; but I admonish you as my dearest children.  For if you have ten thousand instructors in Christ, yet not many fathers. For in Christ Jesus, by the gospel, I have begotten you. Wherefore I beseech you, be ye followers of me, as I also am of Christ.
 --Saint Paul, 1 Corinthians 4:9-16

Saint Thomas, pray for us.
Saint Thomas Edmund, pray for us.


  1. Very Merry Christmas!
    The words of St. Paul Apostle are appropriate to revive the hope, comfort and love, along with the Child of Bethlehem.

    ¡Un gran abrazo!

  2. A very Happy Christmas to you, Peace and Joy for yourself and your loved ones.
    Thank you for all the inspiration and for a lovely gracious place, it is always a pleasure to visit.

  3. Your blog is so beautiful. I particularly like this post, as St. Thomas is one of my patrons, hence, his inclusion on my sidebar.
    I'm so glad that you joined us at Liturgical Time. Welcome!
