Enveloped by divine mercy

By on June 12, 2021

Thomas does not believe it when the other apostles tell him, “we have seen the Lord.” It isn’t enough for him that Jesus had foretold it, promised it: “on the third day I will rise.” He wants to see, he wants to put his hand in the place of the nails and in Jesus’s sign. And how does Jesus react? With patients: Jesus does not abandon Thomas in his stubborn unbelief. He does not close the door; he waits. Thomas acknowledges his own poverty, his little faith: “my Lord and my God!”, He responds to Jesus’s patience. He lets himself be enveloped by divine mercy. He is a new man, no longer an unbeliever, but a believer.
