Child, What If I Heal You?
A friend recently sent me the link to the John Paul II Healing Center website, and immediately upon clicking the link, I was captivated. This image of Jesus guiding Thomas’ hand to touch His side while two others look on caught my attention, and I have not stopped thinking about it since.
Upon further research, I discovered this painting was done by Caravaggio from 1601-1602, and it is titled The Incredulity of Saint Thomas. This work was born from Thomas’ words to Jesus in John 20:25, “Unless I see in His hands the print of the nails, and place my finger in the mark of the nails, and place my hand in His side, I will not believe.”
