–Father Tomas to Maria Walters
Father Tomas is a warm, selfless and compassionate leader of a small but hearty little church. Like Father Karras, Tomas suffers from a crisis of faith. In the season 1 finale, he gets his faith back.
|“||You said I had nothing. You were wrong. I have love, hope, and I have faith. These things are not weaknesses. They make me what I am.... An exorcist.||”|
–Father Tomas, Chapter Ten: Three Rooms
