This story is a miracle. Thomas, like so many before him, is healed by Christ’s touch. Healed of his grief, of his disbelief. Easter tells us there are Truths which are universal. There are Truths which outlast even the worst news. There is Truth worth believing.
We are a people of faith, and let me tell you a secret: Spirituality is not about accumulating hours of prayer for the sake of appearing holy. Spirituality isn’t just about Sunday morning. Spirituality is about deepening.
Authentic faith doesn’t ask you to smile and pretend everything is okay when it’s not.
