Doubting Thomas and the Divine Mercy!

“Peace be with you.”
… do not be unbelieving, but believing.”
I find it curious that we always hear about “Doubting Thomas”
on this Divine Mercy Sunday Gospel…
…the Apostle who was not at the right place at the right time.
Imagine being remembered as the Apostle who doubted Jesus’ Resurrection!
He required proof.  How human of Thomas…do we see ourselves in him?
With Mercy from Jesus, he is shown the proof of Jesus’ Wounds
and he exclaims for all of us…
“My Lord and my God!”
Blessed John Paul the Great, pray for us!

  1. Hi Monica, this is so true that we struggle with walking by faith not by sight in our secular society where we're bombarded with distractions. I would definitely not have been happy to have been remembered through history as the doubting Thomas. It's better than Judas though…:)
