My Lord and my God!
- Words of St. Thomas the Apostle when he saw Jesus resurrected (John 20:28).
July 3 - The Feast of St. Thomas the Apostle - seems like a good day to pray for an increase in faith. While all the Apostles had doubts about Jesus' resurrection, it is St. Thomas's story that seems to stick out the most.
When they saw Him, they worshiped, but they doubted.
When they heard that He was alive and had been seen by her (Mary Magdalene), they did not believe.
... but their (the women from Galilee) story seemed like nonsense and they (the Apostles) did not believe them.
Prayer For An Increase Of Faith
Lord, increase my faith!
