DGeMs- Daily Gospel eMessage

Dear Friend in the Lord,

Courage and Trust – Faith: In today’s Gospel, the blind man shouted out for Jesus with great courage and trust to heal him in spite of the crowd trying to prevent him from doing so.  Jesus healed him.  Ponder on, “Is our courage and trust in Jesus in our needs strong and deep or superficial and half-hearted?”

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

Luke 18:35-43

As Jesus drew near to Jericho there was a blind masn sitting at the side of the road begging. When he heard the crowd going past he asked what it was all about, and they told him that Jesus the Nazarene was passing by. So he called out, ‘Jesus, Son of David, have pity on me.’ The people in front scolded him and told him to keep quiet, but he  shouted all the louder, ‘Son of David, have pity on me.’

Jesus stopped and ordered them to bring the man to him, and when he came up, asked him, ‘What do you want me to do for you?’ ‘Sir,’ he replied, ‘let me see again.’

Jesus said to him, ‘Receive your sight. Your faith has saved you.’ And instantly his sight returned and he followed him praising God, and all the people who saw it gave praise to God.
