Reflection 28 April 2019

ABM

Love: Everyone’s different. Thomas was the sort of person that needed proof before he believed anything. He wasn’t going to be a victim of fake news. Today we find Jesus meeting Thomas’ need for proof literally in a visceral way. Though we still give Thomas the epithet, Doubting, because of his fingers going into wounds, we should remember his doubt fast became faith.

Pray that we might cry, ‘My Lord and my God!’
with St Thomas whenever we encounter Jesus Christ our Lord.

Give thanks for the Church of North India, remembering especially today their ministry in a predominantly non-Christian context .
