Today is the Feast of St. Thomas, known to us mostly as "Doubting Thomas." I've always admired Thomas, he demanded proof for his belief. He wasn't going to take the word of others for something as strange as someone coming back from the dead! I think Thomas must be the patron saint of skeptics. Since I'm a hopeless skeptic, he's my guy :-) But he really gets a bad rap because the other apostles didn't believe until they had seen either.
