6th Week of Ordinary Time (20th February, 2019)
First Reading: Gen 8:6-13, 20-22
Gospel: Mk 8:22-26
Jesus came to Bethsaida and people brought to him a blind man and begged to Jesus to touch him.
Jesus took him by hand out side of the village and laid over his hand over the eyes with HIS spittle. He could see but was not clear. Jesus again laid his hands over and then the man could clearly see.
Jesus asked him to go home and not to the village.
I often feel that I am the blind man. I am referring to the spiritual blindness.
I am blind towards the immeasurable blessings that I have received; I am blind that I don’t see the abundant grace that flows from the lord.
I am blind about the good things and favours that others do to me.
I am blind towards my shortcomings.
I am blind about my neighbour who may need just a moral support to come up in life.
I pray that Jesus touches me with his spittle so that I am relieved of my blindness and I see.
Not just once, but twice so that I am able to see clearly what I should see. Amen.
