This icon image by Br. Claude Lane, O.S.B. recalls Jesus' appearance to his disciples in the upper room after his resurrection from the dead. Peter and John stand in amazement and disbelief as they look upon Christ who suddenly appears in the room in spite of the locked door. Jesus shows them the wounds on his hands and side to calm their fearful and questioning hearts. His greeting of "Peace be with you" (John 20:19) resounds throughout the ages to bring serenity to our lives when our own faith is faltering. St. John's concluding words regarding this scene can equally be applied to this icon: "Jesus did many other signs in the presence of his disciples, which are not written in this book. But these are written so that you may come to believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that through believing you may have life in his name." (John 20:30-31)
