DGeMs- Daily Gospel eMessage

Faith – Doubt: In today’s Gospel, Thomas the apostle refused to believe that Jesus has risen from His Death.  He insisted on physical evidence before he believes.  Many of us believers too, prefer to turn to material gain and glory, than to commit to living the sacrifices and mercy that Jesus’ Gospel proclaims.

 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.’
