Although my body is feeling a bit fatigued from the heat and two hour time difference since arriving in South Carolina, I decided yesterday evening that I had to visit the beach. The last time I was on this beach was the second week of April when I first visited St. Francis by the Sea. There were only about a dozen people on the beach at that time. There were a few more this time. A slight breeze helped, but the nearly 90 degree temperature kept my visit to the beach quite brief. It was still nice to spend a little time just listening to the waves and appreciating the beauty of God's creation.
The Church celebrates the Feast of St. Thomas the Apostle today. Will we doubt, or will we believe in the Lord? I pray that we will see with the eyes of faith and boldly proclaim, "My Lord and my God."
