Henry Klippenstein used Caravaggio’s painting ‘The Incredulity of Saint Thomas’ as a backdrop to speak on the account in John 20:24-29. Thomas has been historically redeemed as ultimately being a believer rather than a doubter, once his skepticism was overcome. Mother Teresa is another example showing that doubt can be a vital step towards a deeper faith. Henry described the “sin of certainty” (rather than doubt) as the opposite of faith. He encouraged us to more freely say Amen as a declaration of our trust, whenever we experience God’s work in our lives. [KH]
