‘Take pity on us, Son of David.’

The first reading from Isaiah speaks of hope and transformation, a world where the deaf will hear, the blind will see, those who err in spirit will come to understanding. The psalm also speaks of a promise of joy, beauty and God’s goodness for those of us in the land of the living. The gospel shows us the fulfilment of these promises as Jesus heals the two blind men, telling them that the healing is done according to their own faith.

In what ways do I choose to shut my eyes, block my ears and close my mind? Do I have a faith that leads to healing, clarity and courage for others and for myself? Do I work towards fullness of life in the here and now?
