Did you think it was accidental that Thomas was away when Jesus came? Or that when he returned, he heard? Or that when he heard he doubted? Or that when he doubted he touched? Or that when he touched he believed? These things are not accidents, but providential: the mercy of God is found in Thomas' doubting: he placed his fingers into the bodily wounds of his Master, so that he might bring healing to the spiritual wounds of doubt in our souls. . . . The sermon.
