‘MY LORD AND MY GOD’ St Thomas is the Apostle whose honesty and frankness about the Resurrection finds a resonance in all of us. To doubt was understandable - and Jesus recognised his doubt. However, Jesus did not offer Thomas a reasoned discourse on why he should believe: rather he showed him his hands and his feet and said, “Doubt no longer, but believe”. Face to face with his Risen Lord, Thomas’ response was “My Lord and my God”. Our doubts are often as real as those of Thomas, and we do not come face to face with the Risen Lord who will dispel them for us. But in small ways, almost without notice, Jesus touches our lives and we get the faith and the courage to proclaim “My Lord and my God”. There is no such thing as strangers. They’re only friends you haven’t met yet.
