St. Thomas, also known as "Doubting Thomas," was one of the 12 Apostles of Our Lord. Because he was absent when Our Lord first appeared to the remaining 10 in the upper room on Easter Sunday night, Thomas said he would not believe, unless he put his fingers into the wounds of His hands and his hand into Our Lord's side. Seven days later, Our Lord appeared again and Thomas was there. At the words of Jesus, telling him to put his fingers into His wounds and his hand into His side, Thomas dropped to his knees and proclaimed, "My Lord and my God." We have that beautiful prayer thanks to Thomas. After Christ's Ascension, Thomas traveled eastward, reaching India, carrying the Faith to the Malabar coast, which still boasts a large native population calling themselves "Christians of St. Thomas."
