St Thomas

Sentence   (St Thomas’ Day should be on 3 July, but it coincides with Pentecost 4, and either can be celebrated.
If Pentecost 4 is celebrated on this day, then St Thomas’ Day is transferred to the following day.)
Blessed are those who have not seen and yet believe. (John 20:29)
Collect   Everliving God, who strengthened your apostle Thomas with firm and certain faith in your Son’s resurrection: Grant us so perfectly and without doubt to believe in Jesus Christ, our Lord and our God, that our faith may never be found wanting in your sight; through him who lives and reign with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
