This homily is based on John 20:19-31 for the Sunday of the Divine Mercy.

He couldn’t wait.

That’s certainly what it looks like. The Risen Lord seemed to be in such a rush to appear to the disciples. Not only, we are told, did He show up in that room on the evening of the first day of the week (that’s Easter Sunday, the same day He rose from the dead), but He also didn’t let the locked doors keep Him away.

He couldn’t wait, could He?
