A Doubter's Novena: Nine Steps to Trust with the Apostle Thomas by Mike Aquilina and Christopher Bailey
We are believers in God, but we also struggle with doubts.
The Apostle Thomas understood what it means to wrestle with doubt. But that's only the beginning of the story. After Jesus answered his skepticism, Thomas became one of the Church s most successful missionaries, evangelizing India despite hardships, misunderstandings, and temptations.
Even today, whether you are inclined to trust or to question, you can find tremendous satisfaction by meditating on the life and works of Thomas. This collection of nine daily readings and prayers reveals his faithful witness that will increase your faith and alleviate your doubts. . Whether your concern is large or small, ongoing or concerned with an individual, specific instance, let Doubting Thomas show you the way to confidence in Christ.
