Jesus appeared to the Apostles, who were behind closed doors in fear of the Jews. Jesus granted the Apostles peace and breathed on them so that they may receive the Holy Spirit. The Apostles present there were joyed by his presence. However, St. Thomas who was not present at that time refused to believe that Lord Jesus had risen from the dead. When Jesus appears again to the Apostles and shows his wounds, St. Thomas proclaims his faith by crying out "My Lord, My God!". Then Jesus says to him "You believe because you can see me. Blessed are those who have not seen and yet believe".
How many times have we too refused to believe in the Lord, when we are faced with trouble. We lose hope and we look down in to the hole of problems. We wait for a sign or a miracle to happen. However, we miss the sign because we are looking down in to the problems.
We need to look up for the solutions. Look up with hope and keep faith in the Lord, even when there are no visible signs. Blessed will be us, for believing though we have not seen.
