Fourth Sunday of Lent
The cure of the man born blind is a long Gospel, but John wants us to know how Jesus healed this man who had been born blind and how that infuriated the Jews. They refused to believe that one who had been blind from birth now could see. They actually throw him out. Then Jesus goes to find him and asks him if he believes in the Son of Man; and the man says, "I do believe" and he worshipped Jesus.
So often we are blind; we do not see but Jesus comes and wants to open our eyes. He is the Light of the World and comes to each of us to show us the way to the Father.
Where do I need to pray for the ability to see? It is easy to be blind to those in need around us.
