Telling the Phrase ‘Doubting Thomas’ to Go To Hell

Today’s gospel reading is about Thomas the Apostle.  This is one of my favorite homilies, in which the late Father Jim Mifsud reminds us that St. Thomas was willing to die for Christ and that he did not really doubt Jesus but the other apostles who were “scared in their pants.”  His commitment to Christ is clear when he utters, “My Lord and my God!”  Fr. Jim uses this passage to remind us that there is no limitation to God’s mercy.
