Good News Inspiration for Daily Life
Description: Reflection to evangelize and build up the faith using the readings from the second Sunday of Easter, John 20:19-31. “My Lord and my God!” is exclamation of Thomas in this Gospel reading. The first step toward believing in the miracle of the Eucharist is to want Christ’s death to save us from our sins and to want his resurrection to take us to heaven. The final step occurs when our desire to unite to Jesus is so thorough that we yearn for him to consume our lives with his presence. We want the divine Jesus to come to us in the flesh, in whatever manner he chooses, to transform us into his likeness.
