Reading for the Day
Ephesians 2:19-22

  • 19 So then you are no longer strangers and sojourners, but you are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God,
  • 20 built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus himself being the cornerstone,
  • 21 in whom the whole structure is joined together and grows into a holy temple in the Lord;
  • 22 in whom you also are built into it for a dwelling place of God in the Spirit.

Responsorial Psalm
Psalms 117:1-2

Response: Go out to all the world and tell the Good News.

  • 1 Praise the LORD, all nations! Extol him, all peoples! R
  • 2 For great is his steadfast love toward us; and the faithfulness of the LORD endures for ever. Praise the LORD! R

Gospel for the Day
John 20:24-29

  • 24 Now Thomas, one of the twelve, called the Twin, was not with them when Jesus came.
  • 25 So the other disciples told him, "We have seen the Lord." But he said to them, "Unless I see in his hands the print of the nails, and place my finger in the mark of the nails, and place my hand in his side, I will not believe."
  • 26 Eight days later, his disciples were again in the house, and Thomas was with them. The doors were shut, but Jesus came and stood among them, and said, "Peace be with you."
  • 27 Then he said to Thomas, "Put your finger here, and see my hands; and put out your hand, and place it in my side; do not be faithless, but believing."
  • 28 Thomas answered him, "My Lord and my God!"
  • 29 Jesus said to him, "Have you believed because you have seen me? Blessed are those who have not seen and yet believe."

What would happen if we were to take seriously God\'s willingness to do the impossible through disciples? Am I willing to take the risk today to find out?
