Christ Jesus, like the apostle Thomas, it can happen that we have doubts about your resurrection. But your love forges a way through our hesitations. You call us to take the risk of trusting, the risk of believing without having seen. And we dare to listen to your voice which says to us: "Do not fear the failures or the trials of life. I am with you for ever."

Christ Jesus, you came to announce deliverance to hearts in captivity. And so, aware of our own weaknesses, we give you our trust.

Christ Jesus, even when you were rejected and mistreated, you continued to love. Your cross remains for ever the sign of your forgiveness. We deeply desire this love to be experienced by all human beings: it is a wellspring of life.
