Dear Friend in the Lord,

Thomas and Risen Lord” – Faith: In today’s Gospel, Jesus appeared amongst the Twelve apostles even as the doors were closed.  Thomas, who refused to believe that Jesus had Risen, with humility he immediately, acknowledged Jesus as, “My Lord and my God”.  Ponder on, “Is our pride preventing us from deepening our faith in our Risen Lord?

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

John 20:24-29

Thomas, called the Twin, who was one of the Twelve, was not with them when Jesus came. So the other disciples said to him, ‘We have seen the Lord,’ but he answered, ‘Unless I can see the holes that the nails made in his hands and can put my finger into the holes they made, and unless I can put my hand into his side, I refuse to believe.’

Eight days later the disciples were in the house again and Thomas was with them. The doors were closed, but Jesus came in and stood among them. ‘Peace be with you,’ he said. Then he spoke to Thomas, ‘Put your finger here; look, here are my hands. Give me your hand; put it into my side. Do not be unbelieving any more but believe.’

Thomas replied, ‘My Lord and my God!’ Jesus said to him: ‘You believe because you can see me. Blessed are those who have not seen and yet believe.’
