Gospel - Jn 20:19-31

19. Then, when it was late on the same day, on the first of the Sabbaths, and the doors were closed where the disciples were gathered, for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood in their midst, and he said to them: “Peace to you.”
20. And when he had said this, he showed them his hands and side. And the disciples were gladdened when they saw the Lord.
21. Therefore, he said to them again: “Peace to you. As the Father has sent me, so I send you.”
22. When he had said this, he breathed on them. And he said to them: “Receive the Holy Spirit.
23. Those whose sins you shall forgive, they are forgiven them, and those whose sins you shall retain, they are retained.”
24. Now Thomas, one of the twelve, who is called the Twin, was not with them when Jesus arrived.
25. Therefore, the other disciples said to him, “We have seen the Lord.” But he said to them, “Unless I will see in his hands the mark of the nails and place my finger into the place of the nails, and place my hand into his side, I will not believe.”
26. And after eight days, again his disciples were within, and Thomas was with them. Jesus arrived, though the doors had been closed, and he stood in their midst and said, “Peace to you.”
27. Next, he said to Thomas: “Look at my hands, and place your finger here; and bring your hand close, and place it at my side. And do not choose to be unbelieving, but faithful.”
28. Thomas responded and said to him, “My Lord and my God.”
29. Jesus said to him: “You have seen me, Thomas, so you have believed. Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.”
30. Jesus also accomplished many other signs in the sight of his disciples. These have not been written in this book.
31. But these things have been written, so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and so that, in believing, you may have life in his name.
