Today’s gospel reading centers on Thomas the Doubter. He probably inspired the saying: to see is to believe.
Skepticism has to be regulated. As the Greeks so wisely espoused: everything in moderation. After all, every ethical virtue is esteemed to be a balance between excess and deficiency. This is also the reason why after Thomas had seen and touched Jesus, he came to believe, thus, he is also known as Thomas the Believer.
It is very difficult to accept that it is not possible to know everything. Yet, there is also comfort in the thought that there will always be so much to discover. Doubts are always welcome as long as it is in moderation.
