L. Alleluia! Christ is risen!
P. He is risen indeed!
L. But are you sure? Do you believe?
P. We don't want to be called "doubting Thomas," but how can this be?
L. Jesus said, "Have you believed because you have seen me?
Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have come to believe."
All. Alleluia! Christ is risen indeed!
