2nd SUNDAY OF EASTER (DIVINE MERCY SUNDAY)

Acts 2: 42-47; Psalm 118; 1 Peter 1: 3-9; John 20: 19-31

By Jude Siciliano, OP

 

Mini reflections on the Sunday scripture readings designed for persons on the run. "Faith Book" is also brief enough to be posted in the Sunday parish bulletins people take home.

 

From today’s Gospel reading:

 

Thomas said...

"Unless I see the mark of the nails in his hands

And put my finger into the nail marks and put my hand into his side,

I will not believe."

 

Reflection:

 

Thank God for Thomas! We’re happy he was there to voice our rational doubts. We are also happy that the church, those new, Spirit-animated disciples, didn’t give up on their recalcitrant member. Let’s hope we modern Christians stay true to our call to be a forgiving community and also a healing one for those hurting in spirit and body.

 

So, we ask ourselves:

 

  • Who are the people who most influenced us in our faith in Jesus Christ?

  • What current stumbling block currently limits a deeper faith in Jesus?
