St. Thomas Sunday

There’s a great deal to love about Thomas’s encounter with Jesus, but what I love most is that Jesus appears to his skeptical disciple in a body that is scarred and wounded. A body that openly bears its traumatic history. A body that refuses to hide its suffering, its sorrow, its brokenness. What Jesus sports are not old wounds. They are wounds so raw that the doubting disciple places his fingers inside of them....

....Jesus’s wounded body reminds me that some hurts are for keeps. Some markers of pain, loss, trauma, and horror leave traces that no amount of piety will take away. Some wounds remain, even after resurrection - and that's okay. It's okay to celebrate Jesus's rising - and grieve our catastrophic losses at the same time. It's okay to hear other people's uplifting faith stories and say, "I'm happy for you, but my heart is still broken." It's okay to ache for more of Jesus, and to hold our ache in tension with the joys of Easter.

This year - more than ever - I cherish the wounds in Jesus’s post-resurrection life. On this first Sunday after Easter, even though we are a resurrection people, we are still hurting. The world is still wounded. Regardless of where on the planet we live, we are still anticipating grief on a scale most of us have never experienced before. This year especially, Jesus’s scarred body speaks with great power, tenderness, mercy, and truth. Allow them to speak to you.
