Family Reflection Video: From Doubt to Belief

Family Reflection Video: From Doubt to Belief

faithfulness  |  saints  |  disciple

Even those who do not know the story of St. Thomas have heard the expression “doubting Thomas.” Why do some of us have a more difficult time believing?

God reveals himself to us each day. We cannot experience the presence of God acting in us unless we give God the necessary space in which to express himself. If we have no confidence in God, he cannot show himself to us.

To experience God we have to jump into the void and make the leap of faith. It will happen if we allow ourselves to count on God and give Him the space to act in our lives. How can you and your family grow to have this confidence in God? How can you help each other to do this?

Daily prayer together as a family will help us reencounter and recognize Jesus! Thank you for spending this time with us today. May God bless you and your family.
