St. Anselm

O God, let me know you and love you so that I may find my joy in you

The Longing Heart Of Thomas

Thomas, you with longing heart
Did want to see and touch your risen Lord.
Your craving love for broken side and wounded hand
Did not doubt as many say;
Only wanted all, to touch and hold your risen Lord
with probing fingers in His hands and side.
For you believed He was the Christ and King of all
But longing for the eyes to see, and only then
to fall on bended knee, “My Lord and my God,”
This held you back from greatest trust,
to love and hold the unseen risen One
as many, many have through ages done.

The Incredulity of Saint Thomas by Polidoro da Caravaggio

Romans 1: 20

Ever since the creation of the world his eternal power and divine nature, invisible though they are, have ben understood and seen through the things he has made
