Reflections
for Sunday, March 30, 2008

"I'll need to see some proof."; How can you be certain?" Have you used one of those expressions today? Influenced by the scientific mindset, which greatly affects the way we look at our contemporary world, most of us are quick to call for proof for anything out of the ordinary, or beyond our experience. We don't want to be "taken in" by extravagant claims or wild speculations.

So today's Gospel, the story of "Doubting Thomas," has a modern appeal. Thomas wants proof of the Resurrection. Scripture scholar Father Raymond Brown notes that Thomas's story comes near the end of a string of stories that link faith to something concrete: the Beloved Disciple sees the burial cloths in the tomb, Mary Magdalene hears Christ's voice, the disciples see the Risen Lord. So it's natural for Thomas, in turn, to ask for proof to answer his doubts.

The evangelist and Jesus are looking for a different reaction: What about those who believe without any physical evidence? Clearly, John wants his readers to make that act of faith, for Jesus calls such believers "blessed."

When we hear this Gospel proclaimed in our local parish this weekend, let's look around and take heart from our fellow believers. When my faith wavers, I gain strength from the Holy Spirit, at work in the community of faith.
