John Kavanaugh, SJ
God’s love for us, even in our sinful
state, is there for the asking if we only believe. We must accept the
lavish gift we have not earned.
John J. Pilch
Believing Without Seeing
Would Thomas be offended to know that the evangelist created a story
featuring him as a “doubter”?
Augustine of Hippo
We can be sure that the miracles he wrought while he lived among us
were meant to encourage us to accept gifts from him that should
never pass away nor have an end.
All who believed were together and had all things in common; they
would sell their property and possessions and divide them among all
according to each one’s need
Reginald H. Fuller
John the Seer sees the risen Christ and receives the messages for
the seven churches. Some have held that this vision was a
continuation of the post-resurrection appearances.
