Serving the Word: John 20: 24-29

John 20, 24-29:
“My Lord and my God”.

The Gospel today repeats two times that “the doors were closed.”
The disciples are frightened and that is why they hide and lock themselves in.
But Jesus makes himself present without the need to open the doors and, precisely because Jesus becomes present, the doors open wide.
The strength of the Spirit of Jesus makes cowards into courageous men. The Spirit which a few disciples who were filled with fear receive makes them into Apostles who are launched throughout the world to proclaim the Good News of the Gospel.
It is possible that today as well many Christians close doors and windows and are overcome with fear.
With the “doubting” Thomas, we’re going to openly confess our faith in our Lord and our God.
And we are going to be courageous to feel sent by Jesus to announce his resurrection as did St. Thomas whose feast we celebrate today.
Good day.
