Thomas

Lent 5 – Year A

Thomas gets it
experience is important
where we put our fingers informs our belief
political analysis is important
whom we travel with determines our safety

Thomas along with the disciples
urges Jesus to do all the good he can
when friends and neighbors call
we owe them the courtesy of a visit
and even a healing

Thomas along with Mary's friends
respond to Jesus' weeping
marveling at his emotional engagement
and trying to make sense of it
by projecting Lazarus as their lover

Thomas may even take the lead
not only in seeing death in resurrection
but not hesitating a moment
jumping forward even before told
to unbind those who can't breathe

Thomas gets it
living large
paying attention
to details
making a difference
