Daily Word Of God

John 20:24-29

Thomas, called the Twin, who was one of the Twelve, was not with them when Jesus came. When the disciples said, ‘We have seen the Lord,’ he answered, ‘Unless I 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. Doubt no longer but believe.’ Thomas replied, ‘My Lord and my God!’

Jesus said to him: ‘You believe because you can see me. Happy are those who have not seen and yet believe.’

Today's Pointers on God's Word

As you read the passage what words, phases or meanings caught your attention?

  • There are times when we ask God to “prove” that He cares and loves us through answering our prayers and needs in the way we want Him to.


  • In today’s Gospel when Jesus shows Thomas proof of His Resurrection he at once acknowledged Jesus as his Lord and God.


  • Ask Jesus for the grace to know and love Him more personally each day and to believe wholeheartedly in His promise of the Resurrection.
