In this episode, we discuss the readings for the second Sunday of Easter (Year C in the lectionary cycle): Acts 5:27-32; Psalm 150; Revelation 1:4-8; John 20:19-31.
We consider "doubting" (or should it be "believing"?) Thomas the Twin, the graciousness of Jesus to reveal Himself in ways that cultivate belief, the richness of the identifying marks on His body being His wounds, and the glorious reality that every eye will indeed behold Him one day. As Psalm 150 and the Easter season beckon us to proclaim: Hallelujah! The Lord is risen indeed!
