Reflection: Cease doubting and believe
While Jesus was alive Thomas was as strong as an oak.
But when Jesus was put to death,
he became a reed shaking in the winds of doubt.
The truth was, though he didn’t realise it at the time,
that it was the Master who was the oak.
When the oak fell he was defenceless.
All of us are shaken by the winds of doubt.
We need to look at the Lord’s wounds,
and hear his gentle voice saying to us:
‘Cease doubting and believe.’
Then with Thomas we shall make bold to say:
‘My Lord and my God.’
