Let Me See Again
Through sight we become aware of everything around us. “I see” also indicates that I understand a point being made. The blind beggar is like us before baptism. We were poor like him, lacking in God’s grace, and like him we could not see spiritually. Then through faith we enjoyed the gift of sight. Now we can look out at the world around us and see it for its true meaning. We continuously see the miracles around us and give thanks to God for the great gifts he has bestowed upon us. The blind man was given sight and he followed Jesus. We do not know whether he persevered and remained faithful on the road together with Jesus. We follow Christ in every Mass, in a sense, up the hill of Calvary. The Mass is an invitation for us to offer ourselves with Christ, to share in the one sacrifice of Christ, to the heavenly Father. Let us pledge that we may persevere in our Catholic faith, remain loyal and faithful to Christ and His Church until death.
