Doubt a Pillar of Faith

I have doubts, I have lots of them.  There I’ve said it.  I am not supposed to say it, people see it as a sign of weakness, a sign of not being intelligent enough, a sign of being a lesser person, a second rate priest.  Doubting is frowned upon, because doubting means admitting you don’t have all the answers, that there are still new wonders to encounter and new discovers to be revealed.  Doubt means you can’t be certain, you can’t make pronouncements or judgements.  Doubt means you can look with open eyes and ears and heart and not be fearful of what you might discover, for revelation will enrich lives rather than making them fall apart when the doubts we have constructed come tumbling down like the walls of Jerico.

Thomas, you became known as the doubter, as if it were a fault rather than a blessing, teach us to be honest doubters so we may discover those glories which we are currently blind to.
