Doubt.

“St. Thomas asks for the very thing the other disciples received […] he wants to see the risen Christ for himself. St. Thomas shows us that doubt, even deep doubt, is not the opposite of faith. Doubt need not be a sign that faith is weak and dying. Doubt can be a sign that faith is alive, longing for the risen Lord to renew our life. Perhaps precisely on account of his doubt, Thomas is able to make the strongest confession of faith of any of the disciples in the gospels: ‘My Lord and my God.'”
– Fr. Kevin McGrath, O.S.B

I’m usually a laid back person. I love to read. I’m a history nerd. If I could go back in time and meet just one person it would probably be Pope John Paul II. I’m married to my best friend. Fall is my favorite season. The Giant Panda is my favorite animal. I love it when you go somewhere, see something, or even eat something and it bring back memories from your past. I love the smell of rain. Oh, and by the way, I’m Leila (lie-luh).

One thought on “Doubt.

  1. Dear Dear Leila,
    There is a book on my soon to read list by Charles Shingledecker named Freedom to Doubt. As I was reading your post it reminded me I need to get a copy of the book. Perhaps you might like it also.

    God bles,
