Dear Friend in the Lord,

Jesus’ Compassion: Wherever Jesus went, He always reached out to those who were suffering – illnesses and crises of all kinds e.g. depressions.  So, when the two blind men approached Him, Jesus willingly cured them.  Do we have Jesus’ compassionate heart or do we “ignore” people’s sufferings?

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

Matthew 9:27-31

As Jesus went on his way two blind men followed him shouting, ‘Take pity on us, son of David.’ And when Jesus reached the house the blind men came up to him and he said to them, ‘Do you believe I can do this?’ They said, ‘Lord, we do.’

Then he touched their eyes saying, ‘According to your faith, let it be done to you.’ And their sight returned. Then Jesus sternly warned them, ‘Take care that no one learns about this.’

But when they had gone away, they talked about him all over the countryside.
