It's the Weekend for the Story of Doubting Thomas: Come take a look!

The Doubting Thomas by Rocco Normanno

This post includes a number of variations on Caravaggio's painting, The Incredulity of Thomas (just below). I hope these images (some classical and some very contemporary) might pique your interest and lead you to spend some time with this coming Sunday's texts and commentary. (And if you'll have children with you this weekend, check here for tips for helping them prepare to hear the Lord's word and the story of Thomas.)

Doubting Thomas by Ben Steele
For some insightful commentary on Ben Steele's work (above) check out Anneke Majors' post at A Motley Vision.  Steele's subject and title form a visual pun playing on the work of Thomas Kinkade.
