Based on: John 20:19-31
On the wall of the gymnasium at MVL there is a large reproduction of a famous painting. The painting is called “The Incredulity of St. Thomas” and the original was painted in 1601 by Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio. The painting shows Jesus on that Sunday evening when he returns to see Thomas. He has pulled back the top part of his cloak so Thomas can see the place where the spear pierced him. Jesus has grabbed Thomas’ wrist and gently pulled his hand closer so that Thomas’ finger is in the wound. Thomas and two other disciples are focused intently on the hole in Jesus’ side, but Jesus, with a slight smile, is focused on Thomas.
