Welcome to Holy Name

Reflection-Cease doubting and believe

While Jesus was alive Thomas was a strong as an oak.  But when Jesus was put to death, he became a reel shaking in the wind of doubt.  The truth was, though he didn’t realize it at the time, that it was the Master who was the oak. He was a mere sapling growing, in his shade.  When the oak fell he was defenceless.  All of us are shaken by the winds of doubt.  We need to look at the Lord’s wounds, and hear his gentle voice saying to us: ‘Cease doubting and believe.’  Then with Thomas we shall make bold to say: ‘My Lord and my God.’
