I am driving home today so I am not writing much in my blog but we can all ask Jesus to cure our blindness. Sometimes we do not see the good in our neighbors; we do not see the little things we can do to please someone; we miss opportunities to do good. Lord, give us light!
One thing that impressed me again about the Sunday Gospel is how Jesus treats the blind man contrasted with the treatment he receives from the Pharisees and others who shunned him as a sinner. Jesus only wants to help him. When, after having his sight restored, the man is still thrown out, it is Jesus who seeks him. Jesus is always searching for those who are outside, those who are shunned, ignored, blamed; Jesus is always the Good Shepherd and seeks those who are lost, wandering away, and then he carries them home with tenderness!
