"The figure of our saviour is simple and dignified in its attitude, and his countenance beams resplendent with benignity. thomas, whose features are expressive of devout contrition, kneels before him, and, in obedience to his command, stretches forth his hand. But he no longer doubts; and appears rather to touch the wound in the side of his divine master in penance for the unbelief he before so pertinaciously maintained, than for the purpose of removing any scruple still existing in his mind." [P. 8.]
