Give thanks to the Lord for he is good, his love is everlasting.

Todayís readings proclaim the triumph of life over death amidst stories of doubt, faith, signs and wonders. The disciples are bold after the death of Jesus, preaching and healing in public. Their actions demonstrate the power of Godís transforming love. But there is also the story of Thomas who cannot believe the resurrection until he sees, touches and speaks to Jesus himself.

Is it really possible that rejected building blocks can become cornerstones? Can I see beyond my current reality and be open to what is yet to come? God has bigger dreams for me than what I can dream for myself. Do I notice the signs of new life that come after great loss? Do I believe in a love that can defeat death?
