“Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have come to believe.” (John 20, verse 19)
At the heart of this Gospel reading lies the thought that the resurrection of Jesus does not guarantee true faith.
The story of Thomas shows us that the joy of the resurrection does not always produce joy and peace. “Thomas was not with them when Jesus came.” (John 20:24)
“Unless I see the mark of the nails in his hands…I will not believe.” (John 20, verse 19) These are the words of Thomas, who will only believe if it is on his terms.
What is the nature of our own faith? How do we believe?
