Focus on the Sunday Gospel for the 2nd Sunday in Easter.
Use this unit study to help teach children that Christ is with us, even if we can't see Him. This lesson is based on the account of Jesus' appearance to His apostles in the upper room in John 20:19-31.
In this week’s Gospel, Jesus appears to His apostles in the upper room. His followers rejoice because they see Him. Thomas was absent and states that he will only believe that the Lord is risen if he sees the miracle for himself. Jesus comes to him, and Thomas’ faith is restored. How often do we forget that Jesus wants to come to us too? We must fight the temptation to forget Christ’s presence in our daily life merely because He is hidden from view. We must remember that Jesus is with us, even if we cannot see Him.
