when he needed sure confirmation.
There were undeniable miracles.
Even so, his heart must have
trembled on the first, yes God
We want a sign:
audible voice from the heavens,
word of knowledge,
and a wonder:
dove to alight on our shoulder
with a message sent.
A fleece will also do.
To prove that what we feel
is really what you are asking of us.
But Thomas reached in on the wounds
in your side with the words:
Blessed are those who do not see
and yet believe.
So are we blessed then,
when we forgo the need for signs
and enter more deeply into the dark
place of trust?
It is love that has been waiting
there for us
in our falling.
