4th Sunday of Lent — SEEING


In this Sunday’s Gospel we hear how Jesus cures a man born blind by opening his eyes on a sabbath, an action which is quickly criticized by the Pharisees who deem it ungodly not to keep the sabbath. That gives Jesus the opportunity to remind us that not seeing with the minds eyes is sin, where being born without sight is not.

The words of Jesus to the Pharisees resonate with us whenever we close our mind to his message, “If you were blind , you would have no sin; but now you are saying, ‘We see,’ so your sin remains.” (Jn 9:41).
