Second Sunday of Easter,

Sermon Topic


A man died and appeared before St. Peter at the Heavenly Gates. Peter was puzzled because he couldn’t find anything in his files to indicate that the man was scheduled to arrive at that time. Consequently, the man was sent down to the gates of hell. But Satan’s gatekeeper was just as puzzled as Peter. He too could find no record of the man’s scheduled appearance at that time. Back the man went to the Heavenly Gates. This time, Peter said, “Well, I’ve finally found your record. But you’re not due here for another eleven years. Tell me, who is your doctor?”

The crucial question for us on our journey toward the Heavenly Gates is not, “Who is your doctor?” or “Who is your lawyer?” or “Who is your accountant?” or even, “Who is your pastor?” The crucial question before us is, “Who is your Savior?” And it is the very same crucial question being asked of the Apostle Thomas in today’s Gospel Lesson.
