Here is today’s Gospel, from St Luke: ‘As he drew near to Jericho, a blind man was sitting by the roadside begging; and hearing a multitude going by, he inquired what this meant. They told him, “Jesus of Nazareth is passing by.” And he cried, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!” And those who were in front rebuked him, telling him to be silent; but he cried out all the more, “Son of David, have mercy on me!” And Jesus stopped, and commanded him to be brought to him; and when he came near, he asked him, “What do you want me to do for you?” He said, “Lord, let me receive my sight.” And Jesus said to him, “Receive your sight; your faith has made you well.” And immediately he received his sight and followed him, glorifying God; and all the people, when they saw it, gave praise to God’.
‘What do you want me to do for you?’ – the courteous request of Jesus to the blind beggar produces an immediate response: ‘Lord, let me receive my sight’. What would our own request be? It is the faith of the blind man that gave Jesus the ‘way in’ to heal him.
May our own faith similarly enable the Lord to work His work within us, and may God bless you this day.
