Blind man of Jericho


Blind man of Jericho, what do I have to do with you? I have eyes, and you had not. I can see and you could not. Yet you could see the important things: you had faith in the One passing by, and you did not hesitate: you asked him to cure you. And your faith saved you. You had faith, you were bold, you asked, you received; best of all, you followed, and he did not stop you. How far did you follow? Did you follow him up to Jerusalem? Did you follow him on his way, the way of the cross? Did you see, dreadfully, the terrible suffering and the shameful death? And did you regret having eyes to see? What did you feel then, about this man, this son of David who had cured you and commended you on your faith? Was your faith in him shaken, did your eyesight waver, were you able to see?
