Thought of the Day April 6, 2018 Faith in the Risen Christ

By 9:57 AM

“The faith of Christians,” says St. Augustine, “is the resurrection of Christ. It is no great thing to believe that Jesus died; even the pagans believe this, everyone believes it. The truly great thing is to believe that he is risen.” The disciples were witnesses, not of the resurrection itself, but of the Risen Christ. But Jesus said there is a greater faith. “You have seen me, Thomas, so you have believed. Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.” (John 20:29) To believe on the testimony of another takes a greater faith. This is the grace of faith we have received and have acted on centuries later. Our faith is no less real than the disciples.
