Sunday of Thomas


"After Thy fearful resurrection, O life-giver Christ,
Thou didst not break the seals of the tomb.
Likewise, Thou didst appear to Thy glorious apostles,
even though the doors were locked.
Thou didst fill them with the joy of Thy Holy Spirit,
in Thy boundless mercy."
At the risk of thinking too anthropomorphically, I can't help but wonder if when confronted with the presence of a barrier--a sealed tomb, a set of locked doors, a closed-up heart--Jesus feels a sense of glorious anticipation, of holy hilarity...
