Saints in the Roman Canon (Part 7)

In the Roman Canon, after John, we find Thomas.

St. Thomas, called the Twin, was slow to believe in the Resurrection of the Lord; but he afterwards proved himself a fervent advocate and propagator of the faith among the Parthians in the East; on his way there he is said to have baptized the three Magi. He went as far as India, where, by the command of the king, he was killed by a stroke of the lance, or, according to another story, stoned and clubbed to death.  As a spiritual architect, he is regarded as the patron of architecture and is, therefore, represented as holding a hewn stone or a square.

St. Thomas, pray for us!

For the Greater Glory of God,
Fr. Matt
