St. Thomas, Apostle

Ephesians 2: 19-22, Ps. 117, John 20: 24-29

Doubt and believe

Every time we receive Holy Communion we put our fingers in the nail holes and our hands into the side of Jesus. We touch his risen body just as surely as Thomas did. Do I believe this? Perhaps I do in my head and emotions but not where it matters most. Doubt is the twin of belief. It lingers in my soul waiting to be raised up by the touch of the real flesh and blood Jesus who is alive and speaking to me in the Eucharist. Imagine what a church full of such believers could do in the world?
