Saint Thomas the Apostle

Claim to fame: St Thomas was absent when the Lord Christ appeared to the disciples after the resurrection. Thomas requested physical proof of the Resurrection, which was fulfilled when Christ reappeared and specifically asked Thomas to touch his wounds.

Quote: ‘Then Jesus said to them plainly, “Lazarus is dead. And I am glad for your sakes that I was not there, that you may believe. Nevertheless let us go to him.” Then Thomas, who is called the Twin, said to his fellow disciples, “Let us also go, that we may die with Him.”’ – John 11:14-16
