Gospel for this Sunday:

(cf John 9: 1, 5, 6-11, 32-33, 35-38)

One day, Jesus saw a blind man begging by the side of the road. The man had never been able to see. Jesus turned to his disciples and said, “I am the light of the world.” Then he bent down and made a paste with some spittle and a little mud. He put this on the man’s eyes and said to him, “Go to the Pool of Siloam, and wash your eyes.”

The man did this, and to his amazement, found that he could see! The people of the town could not believe it. “Is this really the blind beggar?” they asked. “It is me!” he answered and he explained what Jesus had done.  “But who is this man?” the crowd asked. “I do not know where he came from, or who he is, but I know that he made me see. Unless this man was sent by God, he could not have done such a marvellous thing.”

The crowd grew angry with the man and chased him away. Later, Jesus found him sitting alone. “Do you believe in the Son of God?”, he asked. “Yes sir, I believe in him, but I do not know him”, he answered. Jesus said, “You can see him, for he is speaking to you.” At once the man fell to his knees and said, “Lord, I believe in you!”

Prayer for Fourth week of Lent:

Dear Jesus,

I give you my eyes

To see others the way you do.

I give you my heart

To fill with the light of your love.

Let your goodness shine out from me

So that others may “see”

That you are the “light of the world”.
