Thought for today
O Christ, today, gloriously, joyfully, you live for ever
in the life of the world,
in the hearts of those who love you,
in the power of the Spirit to transcend even death.
May we who love you, and find in you our hope,
bear witness, as Thomas did,
that your risen body still carries the marks
of the world’s violence, injustice and greed,
and as we remember and rejoice,
help us to keep faith with all who still, today,
suffer the outrages of violence, injustice and greed.
In our actions, in our prayers, in our choices and in our commitment,
teach us the true meaning of good news for the poor.
