With OUR EYES we see
The beauty of Easter
as the earth awakens once more…
With OUR EARS we hear
The birds sing sweetly
to tell us Spring again is here…
But only with OUR HEARTS
can we feel the MIRACLE OF GOD’S LOVE
Lord, the resurrection of Your Son
has given us new life and renewed hope.
Help us to live as new people
in pursuit of the Christian ideal.
Grant us wisdom to know what we must do,
the will to want to do it,
the courage to undertake it,
the perseverance to continue to do it,
and the strength to complete it.

Thomas was merely echoing the human cry for certainty. However, here on earth there is no absolute certainty about God and spiritual realities. We have to be content with ‘seeing a dim reflection in a mirror’. We are not looking through an open door but peering through a chink. This chink is big enough to let the light in, but not so big as to eliminate the wonder and the mystery. Rationalists approach God and religion as something that can be understood and explained; mystics approach God as something mysterious that can neither be understood nor explained but only experienced. Faith takes us where our senses cannot go.
