"The disciples were assembled on the eighth day,
And the Savior appeared to them!
He gave them peace and said to Thomas:
Come, O Apostle, feel my hands, which were pierced by nails!
O most wonderful doubt of Thomas!
It brought the hearts of the faithful to knowledge!
My Lord and my God, glory to Thee!"
What is the nature of the mysterious, life-giving connection between wounds, doubt/struggle, and the release of grace for revelation?
