Dear Friend in the Lord,

Faith and Trust in God: In today’s Gospel, Jesus cured two blind men because they had a strong faith in Jesus to have the divine power to cure them.  Ponder on, “When we pray and beg God for our or the needs of others, do we do so with a strong faith?  If so, have we not experienced that Jesus always answers our prayers?”

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.
