Tommy, Santo subito! (Tommy, immediately Saint!)
History is full of Saint Thomases: Saint Thomas the Apostle, one of Jesus’ twelve apostles, best known for questioning Jesus’ resurrection when he was first told of it; Saint Thomas Aquinas, the most important Catholic medieval philosopher and theologian; Saint Thomas Becket, Archbishop of Canterbury, murdered by the followers of the king Henry II in the Canterbury Cathedral, and many others.
