    This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1917 Excerpt: ... he said the extraordinary words he did say--' my Lord and my God.' But this does not seem certain, or even very likely. It is well known that melancholy people, when they are at last convinced that the good they thought impossible has actually happened, are apt to go to extravagant lengths in the opposite direction. They are in an excitable and unstable condition of mind. One who is habitually ready to accept good news can accept it when it comes without losing his balance: while one who has determined beforehand that it is impossible, generally does lose his balance when the impossible has happened. It is altogether unlikely that S. Thomas could have risen suddenly to so tremendous a height of faith as his words express (see further below), and our Lord's answer seems to imply that his words, though indeed they had not gone beyond the actual truth, had gone far beyond what he then really believed. 'Jesus saith unto him, Because thou hast seen me, hast thou believed?'1 implying that he had not as yet really gained such faith. It is as though he said, 'Such high faith is not gained through seeing in the way you have seen: those who gain it--who are in the blessed condition--are those that have not seen and yet have 1 Cf. S. John xvi. 13. believed.'1 True steadfastness is not produced by 'miracles, ' which, considered as portents, can only strike the mind and force one to accept some fact which he was determined not to believe before. If this was all that S. Thomas had had to stand on, it is quite possible that he might have been in the depths of despair again later on, when the effect of the Easter revelation had worn off. Compare the story of a great Father of the Church who, when he was told that some man was now an enthusiastic believer in the presence of.
