was not with them when Jesus came.
So the other disciples said to him, “We have seen the Lord.”
But he said to them,
“Unless I see the mark of the nails in his hands
and put my finger into the nailmarks
and put my hand into his side, I will not believe.”
Now a week later his disciples were again inside
and Thomas was with them.
Jesus came, although the doors were locked,
and stood in their midst and said, “Peace be with you.”
Then he said to Thomas, “Put your finger here and see my hands,
and bring your hand and put it into my side,
and do not be unbelieving, but believe.”
Thomas answered and said to him, “My Lord and my God!”
Jesus said to him, “Have you come to believe because you have seen me?
Blessed are those who have not seen and have believed.”

Here's my Easter post for you, St. Paul's decorated for the great feast of Easter.
Old high altar
View from the choir loft
"He is not here; he is risen."
The partly-new (and I'll let you decide if it's improved or not) Baptismal font. Sadly, this came at the expense of the final fragments of the communion rail.

|St. Paul's after Holy Thursday Mass|
After the Holy Thursday Mass, the church is stripped bare - not a decoration in site, awaiting the solemn liturgy of the Passion tomorrow at the holy hour of 3 o'clock. For now, the faithful stay awake with Christ at the altar of repose in the basement.
"Could you not keep watch with me for one hour?"
~ Matthew 26:40
