Christ is risen! Indeed He is truly risen!
We need constantly to contemplate the mystery of mercy.
— Pope Francis, Misericordiae Vultus

The Incredulity of Saint Thomas (Caravaggio), 1601-1602

These wounds become his glory. [...]
Jesus invites each one of us, through Thomas,
to touch not only his wounds,
but those wounds in others and in ourselves,
wounds that can make us hate others and ourselves
and can be a sign of separation and division.
These wounds will be transformed into a sign of forgiveness
through the love of Jesus
and will bring people together in love.
These wounds reveal that we need each other.
These wounds become the place of mutual compassion,
of indwelling
and of thanksgiving.
— Jean Vanier, Drawn into the Mystery of Jesus.
