A Thought:

During life, faith is an ongoing struggle and there are moments of crisis when our minds are darkened and our vision of God is blurred by clouds of doubt.  There is nothing comfortable about believing as it challenges us to change our lives as a result of our encounter with Jesus.  The Risen Christ is present in our midst as much as he was with the early Christians and we are called to live our lives in his name.  It is through believing that we enter into a relationship with Christ and enjoy the new life which he offers us.
