Reading First Reading Second Reading Gospel Divine Mercy Sunday 7th April 2013 Acts 4:32-35 1 John 5:1-6 John 20:19-31 3rd Sunday of Easter 14th April 2013 Acts 5:27-32. 40-41 Apocalypse 5:11-14 John 21:1-19

PSALM RESPONSE: Give thanks to the Lord for He is good, His love is everlasting. GOSPEL ACCL: Alleluia, alleluia! You believe in me, Thomas, because you see me; Happy those who have not seen Me, but still believe! Alleluia!

GOSPEL: In the evening of that same day, the first day of the week, the doors were

closed in the room where the disciples were, for fear of the Jews. Jesus came and stood among them. He said to them, "Peace be with you," and showed them his hands and his side. The disciples were filled with joy when they saw the Lord, and he said to them again, "Peace be with you. As the Father sent me, so am I sending you." After saying this he breathed on them and said, "Receive the Hoy Spirit. For those whose sins you forgive, they are forgiven. For those whose sins you retain, they are retained. Thomas called the Twin, who was one of the Twelve, was not with them when Jesus came. When the disciples said, "We have seen the Lord", he answered, "Unless I see the holes that the nails made in his hands and can put my finger into the holes they made, and unless I can put my hands into his side, I refuse to believe." Eight days later the disciples were in the house again and Thomas was with them. The doors were closed, but Jesus came in and stood among them. "Peace be with you," he said. Then he spoke to Thomas, "Put your finger here; look, here are my hands. Give me your hand; put it into my side. Doubt no longer but believe." Thomas replied, "My Lord and my God!" Jesus said to him: "You believe because you can see me. Happy are those who have not seen and yet believe." There were many other signs that Jesus worked and the disciples saw, but they are not recorded in this book. These are recorded so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing this you may have life through his name. "The disciples were filled with joy when they saw the Lord." What have been your feelings
since the events of last week? "Happy are those who have not seen and yet believe." This is addressed to you! How will you nourish that belief in the future.

DID YOU KNOW? The period from Easter to Pentecost is known as the "Great Fifty Days" and is an integral
part of the Lent-Easter-Pentecost cycle. There is an ancient tradition that Thomas preached the gospel as far east as India.


My Lord and my God.


It is when Thomas is given the opportunity to touch Jesus that he professes his faith. Touch goes beyond verifying physical presence. It can provide healing and comfort; it can be an act of support or compassion.
