Blessed are Those Who Have Not Seen and Believe

04-11-2021We Celebrate Worship Resource, Vol. 46, No. 2

Saint Thomas missed more than seeing Jesus in the flesh on that evening of the first day of the week. He also missed Jesus’ gift of the Holy Spirit. Before he died, Jesus promised his disciples that he and the Father would send the Holy Spirit, the “Advocate,” who would guide them to the truth, who would advocate for them before and unbelieving world. Thomas was not there to see the Lord, so he was not there to receive guidance to the truth; he was not there to receive and advocate to overcome his doubt. Each of us received the Holy Spirit in baptism. We are filled with the Spirit, supported by the Advocate. Despite our differences, even among family members or neighbors, we can be one heart and mind in our faith, like the first Christian community. Each of us bears witness to Christ’s resurrection, an event that transforms our lives and gives us the power to transform our world. May the Holy Spirit within us all advocate for the truth, so that, recognizing the risen Lord in each other, we may testify, like Thomas, “My Lord and my God!” (John 20:28)

How do you bear witness to the Resurrection and its effects on your life?

Dichoso los que creen sin haber visto

Santo Tomás se perdió más que ver a Jesús en la carne esa noche del primer día de la semana. También se perdió el don del Espíritu Santo de parte de Jesús. Antes de morir, Jesús prometió a sus discípulos que él y el Padre enviarían al Espíritu Santo, el “Abogado”, que los guiaría a la verdad, que los defendería ante el mundo incrédulo. Tomás no estaba allí para ver al Señor, por lo que no estaba allí para recibir orientación hacia la verdad; no estaba allí para recibir y abogar para superar sus dudas. Cada uno de nosotros recibió el Espíritu Santo en el bautismo. Estamos llenos del Espíritu, apoyados por el Abogado. A pesar de nuestras diferencias, incluso entre familiares o vecinos, podemos ser un solo corazón y una sola mente en nuestra fe, como la primera comunidad cristiana. Cada uno de nosotros da testimonio de la resurrección de Cristo, un evento que transforma nuestras vidas y nos da el poder de transformar nuestro mundo. Que el Espíritu Santo dentro de nosotros abogue por la verdad, para que, reconociendo en los demás al Señor resucitado, testifiquemos, como Tomás, “¡Señor mío y Dios mío! (Juan 20:28)

¿Cómo das testimonio de la resurrección y sus efectos en tu vida?
