God of the covenant, you touched Thomas in his spiritual blindness and made him an apostle of Jesus. In company with him we pray: Open our eyes, God.  

Help us to seek and find you in unexpected and surprising places. 

Open our eyes, God. 

Strengthen the faith of Pope Francis, bishops, and all the baptized. 

Open our eyes, God. 

Lead all people to see your glory in the natural world and to reverence all of life.  

Open our eyes, God. 

Our Father . . .  

May the peace of the risen Christ dwell in our hearts through faith. Amen.
