The incident in which Thomas gains faith by actually touching the risen body of Christ, is one that also raises questions, questions about the nature of the resurrected body—that body we are promised in baptism. For, although Thomas is able to touch the sacred wounds of Christ’s resurrected body, it is also a body which enables Jesus to enter the room through locked doors—clearly not the same kind of body that was nailed to the cross! What the precise nature of our resurrected bodies will be is, of course, something that we will have to wait to experience for ourselves. Speculation can only take us so far, and yet what we can affirm is that, as Saint Augustine explains, our flesh will rise imperishable, our flesh will rise without blemish, without deformity, without mortality, without being a burden or a weight. So whatever form these qualities assume in our risen state, they all sound most desirable. And it is the faith that believes without seeing that will transform these lowly bodies of ours so that they become like Christ’s in glory. Through the intercession of Saint Thomas may we be granted just such faith—faith that will never waver, but ensure that we become full citizens with the holy ones and members of the household of God.
