Doubting Apostles

Date: April 27, 2014Liturgical Day: The Second Sunday of Easter (Year A)

six days of doubting many years of following Thomas: man of faith

Summary: The disciples meet the risen Christ, and receive his gifts of  peace, Spirit and forgiveness, yet they remain behind closed doors. Their lives don't bear witness to what their words are claiming. Thomas isn't inspired to believe them (Who would be?), but upon meeting Jesus himself, believes, and follows faithfully. Our witness must be more credible — more genuine — than the one Thomas first received from the others! It is what Jesus calls us to do, and who Jesus calls us to be.
