St Thomas a quest for faith

Jul 3, 2020

The members of the grandparent  facebook sharing group shared their experience of having the churches closed and participating in Mass on radio or TV. Many agreed they preferred a visual experience and some had got used to watching the Pope, or a favourite preacher.  Paulina shared, “Even if I am not physically present when Father raises up the host at the consecration I always say, ‘My Lord and My God.’  They are words of worship but for me it is also about belief. I often have to pray harder that God will increase my faith.”  Jess added, “Talking of faith, my sight is almost gone and as I try to see and walk around I certainly have to go “by faith and trust.”

Jesus said to Thomas,” put your finger here and put out your hand and place it in my side.  Do not be faithless but believing.” Thomas replied,  “My Lord and my God!”  Jesus said to him, “You have believed because you have seen me. Blessed are those who have not seen and yet believe.”  John20: 27-29. Pope Francis: “All that we have heard and known, that our fathers have told us, we will not hide from their children, but tell to the coming generation the glorious deeds of the Lord and his might and the wonders which he has wrought. AL 16
