My Lord and my God
  • Ephesians 2:19-22
  • Psalm 117:1-2
  • John 20:24-29

What a proclamation came from the lips of St Thomas; who was judged for his lack of belief but was courageous and stood by Jesus in the most challenging times. Like St. Thomas, we, too, are in a situation because we want to belong without believing and believe without belonging. Jesus tells us, “Have you come to believe because you have seen me? Blessed are those who have not seen and have believed.” Each time he invites us to come, see and touch his wound as he said to St Thomas. He invites us to see the wounds of our family members and others in need. We often forget God’s great things happening in our lives each day. God is trying to make that connection by inviting us to see and touch, letting us know that he is on a journey with us all the time; as he says ‘I am with you always till the end of time, come, touch, feel and experience scars, as you encounter me among the poorest of the poor’. When we encounter him in the Eucharist, let us say: “You are my Lord and my God.”

PRAYER: Abba Father, may I encounter you in my dealings with others. Amen.
