1st Sunday after Easter
Almighty Father, who hast given thine only Son to die for our sins,
and to rise again for our justification: Grant us so to put away the
leaven of malice and wickedness, that we may alway serve thee in
pureness of living and truth; through the merits of the same thy Son
Jesus Christ our Lord.
FAITH IN FOCUS: HURTING THOMAS
would be so easy to read the passage from today's gospel about
"doubting" Thomas and then just presume the lesson to be
learnt is that it's all right to have doubts if you hang on to your
WORD OF GOD
Unless I see the holes that the nails made in his hands and can put my finger into the holes they made, and unless I can put my hand into his side, I refuse to believe.
(John 20: 25)
WORD FOR TODAY
Faith means that, although we cannot see God in the flesh, we are sufficiently receptive to the signs of his risen presence in our world, that not to believe would make no sense. And for Christians the only way forward is by faith.
