About Today Readings

Week II Psalter. 30th Sunday in Ordinary Time.

Jeremiah 31:7-9. Psalm 125(126). Hebrews 5:1-6. Mark 10:46-52.

The Lord has done great things for us; we are filled with joy – Psalm 125(126).

‘Go – your faith has saved you.’

Religious historian Eamon Duffy once wrote that faith is a loving and grateful openness to the gift of living. What a lovely thought.

We often define faith as a belief in a set of rules and regulations, but Bartimaeus shows that his faith was in a person. We know, even though we may be spiritually blind, that we have been given this gift of life by a loving Creator and also given the means to grow into the person that loving Creator means us to be. Lord, when you ask us what you want us to do, we say, ‘That I may see.’

Please, Lord, have pity on me.
