With Thomas let us proclaim, “My Lord and my God,” Pope Benedict says Easter morning

Apr 8, 2007 - 08:52 pm .- Celebrating Easter Sunday Mass in St. Peter’s Basilica this morning, Pope Benedict XVI invited all Catholics to imitate the faith of the Apostle Thomas, putting aside their unbelief and proclaiming, like him, “My Lord and my God.” The Holy Father noted that Thomas was the first to doubt the appearance of the resurrected Lord and the first to come to believe.  He challenged all to overcome their lack of faith and recognize the triumph of the Lord.
