"My Lord, My God"


The thing I find most interesting is that it is common to focus on the fact that Thomas believed because he saw, unlike us who believe even though we haven't seen. Yet, it was really when Jesus spoke a personal word to Thomas that he then exclaimed, "My Lord and my God!". In a sense it was when Thomas heard that his faith became real. In that he is just like us. We believe because of the Word proclaimed to us: He Is Risen!
