Movable feast

The eighth day after the Easter is called Antipascha, meaning 'instead of Pascha or renewal of Pascha' as the final day of the Bright Week. It is also known as St. Thomas Sunday. Apostle Thomas was absent when Christ resurrected and was unwilling to believe it before he could see and feel the Saviour's wounds: 'Unless I see in His hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and put my hand into His side, I will not believe.' (John 20:25). On the 8th day after Resurrection, the Lord appeared to Apostle Thomas and showed him His wounds and bruises from nails and spears. 'My Lord and my God!' cried Apostle Thomas. Jesus said to him, '... Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.' Having repented for his doubting, Apostle Thomas founded churches in Palestine, India, and Ethiopia. Parts of his relics stay in India and on Mount Athos.
