12/21/2021 – St. Thomas the Apostle

Saint Thomas is one of the original Twelve Apostles chosen by the Lord Jesus Christ to be His follower. We learn from the gospels that the Apostle Thomas was deeply devoted to our Lord throughout His earthly ministry and that he remained a faithful servant to Him after His Ascension into Heaven. Empowered by the Holy Spirit, Saint Thomas, along with Christ’s other disciples, traveled throughout many regions preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ and healing those in need. He, like the others, faced many trials and endured harsh persecution by the hands of those who were opposed to the teachings of Jesus. Nevetheless, all of the Lord’s disciples continued spreading His gospel, even to the point of death. According to tradition, Saint Thomas was murdered while preaching in Calamine, a city in India in which the Apostle is noted to have lived at one time.
