GOSPEL  REFLECTION

Thomas, doubting and questioning, is possibly a person with whom we can identify. Note the way Jesus dealt with Thomas. He did not give out because he doubted. He took him where he was and led him along to see the truth of his resurrection.

‘Blessed are they who have not seen and yet believed.’ That requires great trust. Perhaps you have had the experience of being trusted without having had to prove every step along the way. What was it like to be trusted in that way?

 

TIDY  TOWN
