Believe, April 3, 2016 Sunday Tidbit



“Thomas answered and said to him, “My Lord and my God!” Jesus said to him, “Have you come to believe because you have seen me?” Blessed are those who have not seen and have believed.” – John 20: 27-29

Yesterday, at Mass after the Gospel was read Jake leaned over and whispered to me I love that line, “Blessed are those who have not seen and have believed.” I agree completely, because that is us. We believe without seeing the empty tomb or putting our fingers into his wounds. Father said last night in his homily the reason he believes is because of the transformation in others. I never really thought about it that way but it makes sense. If it were not for belief and the empowerment of the holy spirit the disciples would never have left that upper room. ┬áThose who truly know God and believe live a different life, one of selfless love for others.

Have you seen the transformation? Have you been transformed? Do you truly belief? Without seeing I believe…
