Still in doubt??

1279824593jesusthomas

The joy of Jesus Christ risen from the dead is an event that expands for eight days reaching it’s climax today with the Gospel recounting the doubting Thomas.

Are there moments in our life when we doubt like Thomas? Moments when we are so unbelieving in the wonder of what God can do for us. Moments when we fail to recognize the Resurrection of Christ in those parts of our lives that remain in darkness and that remain in the shadow of Good Friday. Perhaps, we desire to remain in the Good Friday feelings of lost hope and despair thinking that God cannot be bigger than our personal issues and tragedies.

As the baptized, we are called to live in the Resurrection of Jesus Christ and not linger in the darkness of Good Friday. God takes despair and gives hope; God takes a tragedy and allows the light of Christ to curse the darkness. There is no tragedy so great, no sin, no situation in which God’s mercy cannot break through, in which God’s love cannot redeem us.

    St. Thomas personifies our need for tangible evidence of God’s presence. I would like to think that with God’s grace we can know in our hearts the loving presence and mercy of God, especially in the Eucharist.
