Feast of Saint Thomas, Apostle

Today is the Feast of Saint Thomas, Apostle.  Readings are here.

Saint Thomas is known as Doubting Thomas, as he did not believe the reports of the Risen Lord.  I find it quite inspiring though, as he certainly made up for lost time later.  
He was perhaps the only Apostle who went outside the Roman Empire to preach the Gospel. He is also believed to have crossed the largest area, which includes the Parthian Empire and India. (Wikipedia)
