Dear Friend in the Lord,
Healing Faith: In todays Gospel, Jesus cured the blind man privately and in two stages. Ponder on, Jesus shows us His Compassionate Love and Mercy in personal ways. At times Jesus in Gods Providence can even take months, years before we experience His full healing. Let us trust Jesus more wholeheartedly.
Fr Philip Heng, S.J.
Jesus and his disciples came to Bethsaida, and some people brought to him a blind man whom they begged him to touch. He took the blind man by the hand and led him outside the village. Then, putting spittle on his eyes and laying his hands on him, he asked, ‘Can you see anything?’
The man, who was beginning to see, replied, ‘I can see people; they look like trees but they are walking about.’ Then he laid his hands on the man’s eyes again and he saw clearly; he was cured, and he could see everything plainly and distinctly. And Jesus sent him home, saying, ‘Do not even go into the village.’
