Enveloped by divine mercy

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.
– Pope Francis, The Church of Mercy

Jesus invites us to abide in Him so as to bear much fruit (see Jn 15:5-9). Abiding in the Lord means finding the courage to step outside of ourselves to take care of others' needs and give a Christian witness in the world. #Prayer #UnityOfChristians
