An excerpt from Fr. Mark’s sermon last year on Thomas Sunday:
“Doubting Thomas?” Why do they call me Doubting Thomas?
They don’t call Peter, “Denying Peter,” do they? And Peter denied Him 3 times… when He needed him the most.
They don’t call Paul, “Hold Your Coat While You Stone Him Paul,” do they? Even though that’s exactly what he did when they stoned Stephen. . . .
