Beyond Doubt: Learning from St. Thomas the Apostle

Beyond Doubt: Learning from St. Thomas the Apostle
April 2015

By Paul Homer

The gospels are filled with the greatest stories ever told, and surely the greatest among them are those we hear during this Easter season. The wondrous accounts of the glorious appearances, movements, and words of the Risen Christ give us our first and best glimpse into salvation. They also provide us with profound insights into the human condition.  One might have expected that the power of the Resurrection would have cured us of every weakness of thought, action, and character. Not so. On the plus side, we have Mary Magdalene, who kept faith with Christ in contrast to the Apostles, who were holed up and cowering in the upper room. Her willingness to go it alone to the tomb resulted in her being a first witness to the Good News. Peter’s poor performance during the Passion did not preclude him from coming around and listening to Mary Magdalene's report. His willingness to trust and to go to the tomb marked the beginning of his dramatic turnaround. And, of course, the beloved disciple never wavered.

For many of us, though, the most memorable post-Resurrection story involves the Apostle Didymus, better known as St. Thomas the Apostle, sometimes called the Apostle to India, and forever remembered as doubting Thomas. I have a special affection for St. Thomas the Apostle—my wife, Karen, and I were married on his feast day (July 3) and our home parish bears his name.  But it is his very human and flawed story that moves me. The Scriptures actually tell us more about Thomas than most of the other apostles. He was brave with perhaps a dark sense of humor. When Jesus announced at a very dangerous time of his ministry that he was going to Lazarus’s tomb in Judea, Thomas retorted, “Let us go so that we may die with him.”(John 11) And Thomas’s deep need to know and to understand was there from the beginning. After Jesus said at the Last Supper “Where I am going, you know the way,” Thomas asked, “Master, we do not know where you are going; how can we know the way?” Jesus then proclaimed, “I am the way and the truth* and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” (John 14)

But it is the post-Resurrection story in John 20 for which Thomas is best remembered:
Thomas, called Didymus, one of the Twelve, was not with them when Jesus came. So the other disciples said to him, “We have seen the Lord.” But he said to them, “Unless I see the mark of the nails in his hands and put my finger into the nail marks and put my hand into his side, I will not believe.” Now a week later his disciples were again inside and Thomas was with them. Jesus came, although the doors were locked, and stood in their midst and said, “Peace be with you. Then he said to Thomas, “Put your finger here and see my hands, and bring your hand and put it into my side, and do not be unbelieving, but believe.”  Thomas answered and said to him, “My Lord and my God!” Jesus said to him, “Have you come to believe because you have seen me? Blessed are those who have not seen and have believed.”

Homilies and paintings through the centuries have focused on Thomas’s skepticism, the privileged encounter with Jesus who invites Thomas to touch His wounds, Thomas’s ultimate proclamation of faith, and the blessing of Jesus on all of us who believe without seeing. There is, however, a little passing line in the passage that has always jumped out at me: “Now a week later His disciples were again inside and Thomas was with them.” (v.26)  Thomas, who had not yet come to believe, remained with the other disciples. Why on earth would he have chosen to stay? Even if he allowed himself to believe that Jesus had risen and appeared to the others, Thomas knew that Jesus had not come to him. No one would have blamed Thomas for walking away from the community, for regarding his time following Jesus as a failure, or for embarking on a new chapter in his life. Yet, despite his unbelief, Thomas remained with the disciples.

How often when we are feeling disappointed, hurt, angry, or persecuted are we tempted to turn away from our core values and life-giving relationships? How often do we lash out, give in, feel down, or drink up when we’ve had a falling out with someone we love; been the victim of undeserved suffering; or witnessed the hypocrisy of our leaders?  

Thomas knew well all those pains and temptations, yet he remained with the disciples. Though lacking belief in the Risen Lord, he somehow knew deep down that his life in that community offered him more than any other path he could have taken. There is much wisdom in the ancient admonition to “avoid sin and the occasion of sin.” Thomas’s advice to us is to “seek grace and occasions of grace, even when you are not feeling grace.”

Thomas may not have yet come to believe, but he seemed to know where to position himself if belief were going to come to him. So, when the joy and consolation of faith are elusive, as they were for Thomas, let us try to put ourselves in a place where grace has been known to walk through locked doors--in prayer, in the sacraments, in loving relationships, in worship with the community, in service to those in need. It is in those places where we are most likely to encounter the Risen Christ and to find ourselves proclaiming “My Lord and my God.”
