This week’s Gospel tells us about Jesus giving sight to a man who is blind form birth. An interesting observation is how the man described Jesus as a man, a prophet and finally the “Son of man”.
Whilst he gains physical sight from this miraculous encounter, what is even more important is he gains the knowledge and the faith that Jesus offers him.
The homilist reminds us this week that whilst we all crave physical healing for whatever ailments afflict us and our family or friends. But if we have been blessed with healing, we need to turn our lives around and back to God.
And like the blind man who was interrogated, we have to hold on to the truth and not deny what we know in our hearts. We need to hang on to our encounter with Christ and allow him to grow and increase our faith so that we can truly live out our lives as God’s children.
