Fr. Walsh’s Sunday Message:
We all have “bad moments” don’t we? Thomas had a “bad moment” in the gospel today (Jn 20:19-31). Thomas refused to believe Jesus had resurrected from the dead without personally experiencing it with his own eyes. Later, Jesus does appear to him and it left Thomas ashamed, embarrassed and disappointed in himself. How did Jesus handle Thomas’ bad moment? He handled it with compassion and understanding.
All of us have bad moments when we doubt God, question God, are angry with God or wonder if we even believe in God. How does God handle our bad moments? The same way he handled Thomas’ bad moment….with compassion and understanding
