Sonnets to enhance the Lectionary
Introduction to the Gospel for Easter Season
We Know By Faith
Thomas doubts; will not believe, requires proof
He touches Jesus’ flesh, hand in his side
then knows! "My Lord and God" he cried!
But bless’d are those of faith, who know the truth.
Faith motivates, a certainty which moves;
faith will not leave us still; we are sent on.
Inward lit, the heart, in Christ, has seen the dawn
the truth for us, in ever-fresh Good News.
By faith in Jesus Christ we are empowered.
We cannot lose; we are with victory showered.
[Year B - Second Sunday of Easter]
