The Resurrection

The fruit of this mystery is Faith.

This ties in nicely with the readings this past Sunday, where we heard about Thomas and how he needed to see the nail marks in his hands and put his hands in the side of Jesus, so he would know it was truly Jesus. I read some other commentaries/reflections on the readings and it notes that the other apostles needed to see the hand and side of Jesus before they believed that it was truly the Christ resurrected, so they all needed proof that it was Jesus. So we are truly blessed since we cannot see but still believe. Pope Francis’s encyclical Lumen fidei the conclusion of Benedict XVI’s encyclicals on the theological virtues (Faith, Hope, Love) is a the most recent church document about faith. In general terms our faith is based on love, we have utmost faith in something we love. Let us grow closer to the Lord during this season of Easter and come to love our heavenly family.
