Great Vespers – Tomorrow is the Sunday of St. Thomas – Jesus came and stood among the disciples and said, “Peace be unto you!” Then, turning to Thomas, He said to him, “Put your finger here, and see My hands; and put out your hand, and place it in My side. Do not be faithless but believing.”  Then Thomas exclaimed, “My Lord and My God!” Jesus Christ said to him, “Have you believed because you have seen Me? Blessed are those who have not seen and yet believe.”
