Machnamh / Reflection

The heart of Jesus
Nearest to the Father’s heart
A wellspring full of love
Richness for my poverty
Wholeness for my brokenness
Home for my wandering
Fullness for my emptiness
Loving care for my selfishness
Healing for my hurts
Faith for my Mediocrity
Courage for my fears

The heart of Jesus
Nearest to the Father’s heart
Drawing all of me to him
Reaching from his heart to mine,
Tender, compassionate, true,
Wanting one thing only:
My loving response.

Smaoineamh / Just a Thought

The example of Thomas is particularly enlightening for us. He showed a refreshing honesty. He made no attempt to hide his doubts. Doubt is often looked on as a sign of weakness. We tend to feel guilty about having doubts. But doubt can be a growing point, a stepping stone to a deeper understanding. It certainly was for Thomas.
Having overcome his crisis of faith, Thomas went on to bear courageous witness to Jesus, and became one of the greatest mssionaries of the early Church.
